Welcome To Our Website!




I am pleased to announce that we have new officers and members of the ODONA Board of Directors.  They are: 

President - Jennifer Maple, DON,  Willow Haven Care Center, Zanesville

Treasurer – Shanea Creighton, DON, Beckett House, New Concord

Recording Secretary – Carolea Mercer, DON, Adams Lane Care Center, Zanesville

We still have vacancies for Vice President and Corresponding Secretary.  If you are interested in either of these positions, please send me an e-mail to

Katie Sorrell and I have agreed to remain on the board as Trustees.

I want to thank the former Board members for their service.  Each of these women have served on the ODONA Board for the past eight years and we owe them our profound gratitude for their dedication and countless hours of service:

 Katie Sorrell Corresponding Secretary
Rhonda Thomas, Treasurer
Johnna Johnson, Regional Representative

And, finally, thanks to Julie Williams, who has served for the past two years and who has taken some great pictures for our website.

I have served as your President for the past eight plus years and I consider it to have been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career.  You, the members, have provided support and encouragement throughout my tenure, and I appreciate each and every one or you. 

Please continue your support of ODONA – an organization dedicated to you, the DON –by renewing your membership through NADONA each year and attending our annual conferences in the Spring of each year. 

Thank you so much for the past eight years!


 Peggy Kish, RN
Past President
