ELLICOTT CITY, Md. — Paula O’Neill has been selected as executive director of The Lutheran Village at Miller’s Grant, a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) under construction in Ellicott City.
“Paula brings more than 25 years of senior living experience to the table,” said Geary Milliken, president and CEO. “Her leadership abilities will be invaluable as we prepare to bring this dynamic new community to life.”
O’Neill has been the executive director and nursing home administrator for the Maryland Masonic Home in Cockeysville since 2005. Her experience also includes leadership roles at Oak Crest Village in Parkville and Fahrney-Keedy Home and Village in Boonsboro. She served on the Maryland LifeSpan Network Board for four years, was the president of the Masonic Communities and Services Association for two years, and now serves as treasurer for LeadingAge Maryland.
She holds an undergraduate degree in Business Management and a graduate degree in health care administration from Notre Dame of Maryland University.
O’Neill will begin her new role in early April and will initially be located at Carroll Lutheran Village in Westminster, the sponsor organization of Miller’s Grant. Construction on the 50-acre site along Frederick Road in Ellicott City is now underway. The first residents are expected to move in at the end of this year.
