Our People

Our days are filled with important duties and routines. Yet human connection takes precedence over the necessities of our job descriptions every time. You are why we're here.

We bring varied backgrounds and skills to our roles, but we are all here to love and support you.

Elizabeth (Beth) Deupree Executive Director: Elizabeth (Beth) Deupree

Beth holds a Bachelor of Science in Gerontology from The College of Mount St. Joseph and has more than 30 years experience in Long-term Care. Since working in the gift shop of a local nursing home at the age of 15, Beth continued to serve the residents she came to love for more than 10 years as a prep cook, server, housekeeper, in medical records, as a Certified Nursing Assistant, then Administrator in Training.

“My heart is here with our residents. I make it a mission to ensure that each person receives the care and support they need, while maintaining as much independence as possible. I love to share a meal with them as often as I can. There's something really special about 'breaking bread' together. This is an amazing generation of people, and we're here to help them find happiness and comfort in their new home.” Beth is blessed to have two wonderful children, a 16-year-old son, Carter, and a 14-year-old daughter, Remi. She is engaged to be married in July to David Fabian and thrilled to be adding four wonderful 'bonus children' to her life: 15-year old Owen, 14-year old Renee, 12-year-old Jacob and seven-year-old Grace.

Monique Campbell Community Relations Director: Monique Campbell

Monique has been an LPN for 31 years and an advanced EMT for a decade. Her entire career has been dedicated to geriatrics in every facet, from independent and assisted living to memory care, skilled nursing, home care and liaison roles.

"I love helping elders to live the best quality of life possible. I feel very strongly that you treat people the way you would like to be treated and the way you would want your family members to be treated. Patience, honesty and empathy are key. We love having fun, too! We like to say that we work in our residents' homes, not that they live where we work. If you want to be a part of a beautiful, fun, extended-family environment, come join us!"

Monique is married with four children, three step children and seven grandkids.

Michael Hicks Culinary Director: Michael Hicks

Michael was a part of Cincinnati Cooks, a program with the Free Store Food Bank. He is ServSafe certified, holds a Food Handlers certification and worked his way up in restaurants from a dishwasher to virtually every position in the kitchen.

"Food brings us together. I always loved cooking with my mother. When she passed, it helped me deal with her loss. I hope I bring the residents as much happiness as they bring to me. I am a people person and I like to challenge my staff to be themselves and to be creative in every way."

Michael hails from a family of food lovers, most of whom can cook as well.

David Swigart Maintenance Director: David Swigart

David studied accounting, architecture and construction at Sinclair Community College. He has been a Licensed Journeyman Plumber with the City of Dayton since 2004 and a Maintenance Director for nearly a decade.

"A good friend led me to this close-knit and personable senior community. I truly enjoy the satisfaction of fixing things and overcoming challenges. It is very gratifying to help others and to be an integral part of a thriving community. This generation has sacrificed and poured into people like me, and I treasure being around and learning from our wise and seasoned residents."

David was born and raised in Centerville and is the youngest of four. His four children brought the total number of grandchildren for his parents to 13, and David's oldest just made him a grandpa this past Easter.

I would highly recommend this place. Staff is the friendliest I have ever been around. The wellness director, Leanne and the front desk, Kelly greets everyone with a smile and genuinely cares about every resident and their families. Great, clean, bright atmosphere!

Dear Sherrie, I can’t thank you enough for literally getting my mom’s apartment ready for her to move! You went above and beyond to help me out. I’ll be forever grateful. I ordered 2 pillows, an extra set of sheets and extra pillow cases for mom. I’ll drop them off when I receive the shipment. Traditions is lucky to have your expertise when it comes to warmth and kindness. I feel confident mom will benefit as well! Blessings.

Because Traditions of Lebanon is brand new, everything was sparkling clean. We saw the independent living places and then we saw the cafeteria and all that kind of stuff. We saw the little duplexes. It was brand new, and nobody else has been in it. It was very nice and very upscale. The staff was very helpful and gave me all kinds of information. You got one meal a day with their independent living and they had a little bar, a little cinema room, a nice little cafeteria, and a dog park.
After reaching an age of inability to care for and keep up the 2600 sq. foot house, 20 acres of land and assorted house hold and farm equipment, my husband and I decided it was time to down size. Receiving a flyer from Traditions of Lebanon at the Lebanon YMCA, we immediately sought out information of this style of living. Management of Traditions offered several possibilities to make our move simple to easy. We chose to use Relocations Planners which sold our property, disposed of items unable to move and actually moved us into a villa of Traditions of Lebanon. We have found the independent living facility, Management, staff, Chefs and food of Traditions of Lebanon be excellent, as well as the other residents. We have already made some good friends.— Highly recommend.

We have been very happy with Traditions of Lebanon so far, the staff members are super friendly and actually show genuine concern about the residents well being. They make sure they are comfortable and are on top of their medication, they are not afraid to ask questions either. We don't have much feedback regarding the meals and dining service, from what we have heard the meals sound great but they are not yet allowing the families to eat with the residents in the dining hall. The families however can eat with their loved ones in their own room. Based on the activities schedule it seems like they have quite a lot to offer, our loved one is getting out more and socializing - she just seems brighter. We would recommend this community to others.
