Foundation Staff

 

Libby Bush
CEO of Vinson Hall Retirement Community and Executive Director of Navy Marine Coast Guard Residence Foundation

As a second generation aging services professional, Libby has many years working in the field.  With this background, the draw to the residents and staff at VHRC was unmistakable.

Born in Ohio, and raised in Kansas City, Libby went to the College of Wooster for undergraduate studies, and received her Master’s degree at the University of Maryland in the Erickson School.  As a licensed nursing home administrator, preceptor, and certified aging specialist, Libby’s life mission is to make the world the best it can be for older adults by highlighting each individual’s best self.  As a LeadingAge Virginia board member, and Leadership Academy Coach, Libby is not only able to live this mission through her daily work at VHRC, but also at a more macro level. 

Prior to coming to Vinson Hall, Libby was the Chief Operating Officer for Ingleside, and prior to that Executive Director at Westminster at Lake Ridge.  Richmond, Virginia was home for twenty plus years where Libby spent her professional life at Westminster Canterbury Richmond, and personal life starting a family with her husband, Jeff, of almost twenty-five years.

When Libby and Jeff are not working, they can be found with anything having to do with their son and daughter, and four legged daughter, Bella.

Sara Sims
Assistant Director of Development

This Arlington native came to VHRC in 2012 as an Activity Assistant. With four years of previous fundraising experience in the direct mail world, I moved to the Foundation in 2014 as the Development and Volunteer Coordinator. Now serving as the Assistant Director of Development I have enjoyed being able to support the residents of VHRC through my passion for fundraising and helping others.

In my spare time I like to cook for family and friends, try to stay caught up on my favorite shows, and explore new places to relax, hike, or visit with my boyfriend. My road trip must have is a slushie and great music. When traveling with co-workers I can frequently be found in the passenger seat making the ‘trucker honk’ motion with my arm and seeing how many semi-truck drivers will respond.
