Meet Staff

The strength and continuity of CARIE’s staff is a vital internal resource adding to the organization’s success. CARIE’s dedicated and hard working staff demonstrates sincerity and professionalism. Diane Menio, Executive Director of CARIE is the organization’s second director and has been with the agency since 1989. Kathy Cubit, Director of CARIE’s Advocacy Initiatives joined the staff in 1988. Managers, Lori Walsh and Rebecca Nurick, have a combined tenure of over 30 years with the agency. CARIE has a dedicated Board of Directors representative of professionals and consumers who help to guide its work.

CARIE has numerous volunteers who assist in helping to achieve its mission—many are older adults themselves who put in countless hours helping long-term care residents with complaints, giving informational presentations, and providing professional services. Additionally, collaboration with aging and other service providers, academicians, and policy makers provides a wide network of support for CARIE’s clients and their caregivers as well as an extensive resource base for staff.
