Randy Quisenberry is a member of the Association for Professionals in Aging, a board member, and chair of Membership and Sponsorship Committee.
Randy chose a career serving the public. After spending 10 years with Butler County Government where he worked with many departments and agencies including Job and Family Services, Children Services, Butler Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities, Randy moved to the Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio (COA). He is the Manager of Procurement and Provider Services.
The COA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing quality of life for older adults, people with disabilities, their families and caregivers. The organization promotes choice, independence, dignity and well-being of seniors through a range of services that help people remain in their homes for as long as possible.
Founded in 1971, the COA is part of the national aging services network and is a state-designated Area Agency on Aging, serving individuals across a multi-county region that includes Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Hamilton and Warren counties, with limited programming in Greene and Montgomery counties. One call to COA links people to the wide variety of agencies, information and programs that serve older adults, people with disabilities and their caregivers.
