Traditions’ Memory Support, Carol’s Place, is named in honor of our CEO’s beloved mother, Carol. Wes is the youngest of Carol’s five children, grew up in a vibrant, supportive, and loving household and remains close with his mother and siblings today.
Wes has a passion for older adults and has devoted his entire career to senior living. Having had a general understanding of the journey adult children take with their parents in moving to senior living, his compassion grew many-fold when he and his siblings took their own journey with Carol, who recently moved to independent living.
Wes refers to what he and millions of others go through as a national crisis. “There is simply not enough information and support to help guide adult children as they navigate through the emotional maze associated with the challenges of helping our parents as they age. At Traditions, we want to truly be a resource to these adult children, loved ones, and the older adults themselves. Whether you choose to move to a Traditions community or not, we want to provide the resources and support needed to make a successful decision for your family.”
Traditions was created to provide senior living in local communities. “Each of our sites is integrated in its local community, celebrating the culture and traditions of that community. In addition, we want to celebrate the uniqueness, culture, and traditions each of our residents bring to us. Whether it’s independent, assisted living, or memory support, we get to know our residents as the individuals they are, the wonderful history and experience they bring with them and the life they can live and celebrate in the now.”
We recognize that everyone has unique needs and preferences. We also understand that many families simply cannot afford the cost of residency plus add-on charges. That’s why our rates are very simple and straightforward for residents requiring low-, mid-, or high-level assistance.
Traditions of Spring Hill offers monthly rental apartments with no buy-in fee! The rates include all levels of care. There are no hidden fees or surprise costs.
Studio, one, and two bedroom suites available. Private and shared accommodations available in memory support.
A native of Pennsylvania, Beverly has recently relocated to Spring Hill, TN to lead the Traditions of Spring Hill team.
Beverly has vast experience in the senior living industry. Her 16 years’ experience with one of the country’s largest Health Care companies, HCR Manorcare, allowed her to expand her administrative experience (she held the position of Licensed Personal Care Home Administrator for 10 years) to include Home Health and Hospice, serving 9 counties in South Central Pennsylvania. She also has extensive experience in dementia education, fiscal management of agencies and facilities, and team building.
A graduate of Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, she also attended Temple University’s Master of Social Work program. Her previous experience includes hospital and nursing home social work, healthcare marketing, and administrations positions.

Holly holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from Middle Tennessee State University and Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Tennessee with an emphasis on Administration/Management. She began her career as the Director of Social Services at a local hospital where she first became interested in senior care relations. After serving in this position for 15 years she made the decision to narrow her focus to older adults and took on the role of Regional Director of Social Services of a nationally owned chain of nursing and rehabilitation centers.
In 2012 she began working for a geriatric care management company in the Nashville, TN area. She soon realized her passion for making and sharing solutions, so she decided to open her own company, CC Solutions. They prided themselves on being responsive to the needs of seniors, family members, caregivers, communities, on a short or long-term basis. She is skilled and diplomatic at smoothing the bonds between families, facilities, and the person requiring assistance. Holly’s goal is to bridge the gaps in healthcare in order to make measurable differences and restore quality of life for clients, families, and caregivers.
Lisa Leppke has been an advocate for seniors since age 10, when she started volunteering at a local retirement home. After raising her two children, she took her still-burning passion and became an Activity Director in senior living. For the past 10 years, Lisa has worked in both Assisted Living and Memory Care. She specializes in creating robust activity programming from the ground up based on her residents’ interests and wellness.
Lisa says she brings to her programs the best of everything her residents wish to continue doing, things they have always wanted to do, and things they never knew they wanted or could do but are willing to try. She believes that each and every senior has a story to be told, a passion to live life to its fullest, and a desire to be needed.
Lisa enjoys spending time with her family, crafting of any kind, serving at her church, reminiscing with those who have gone before us, repurposing old things (especially the rusty, chipped, painted kind), gardening, singing the old hymns and pampering others. She is extremely excited to be a part of the team at Traditions of Spring Hill!

After serving a four-year enlistment in the United States Air Force, Howard began working for Hershey Entertainment and Resorts, in Hershey, PA. His first position was in the arrangements department at the Hershey Lodge, the largest convention resort in the state of Pennsylvania. He worked in that capacity for thirteen years, then transitioned into the lead shipping and receiving clerk for the convention center, a position he held for eight years.
In May of 2006, Howard transferred to Hersheypark, to take a position in the maintenance department, serving on the utility crew. He continued in this role for eleven more years, until June of 2017. At that time Howard took an early retirement, after 32 years with the company.
When he was not working, Howard was elected to several terms on the church council at St. Luke Lutheran Church in Schaefferstown, PA. He served as secretary, vice president, and president during his various terms on council. He also volunteered to serve the community, having traveled with a group from the church to Biloxi, MS, to aid in hurricane relief work after the devastation wrought by hurricane Katrina. His family also volunteered to aid in the St. Luke food mission, by cooking Sunday evening meals that were served, at no cost, to the local community.
In his spare time, Howard enjoys playing disc golf, mountain biking, and fishing. He is glad to leave the harsh winters of Pennsylvania behind, and is especially glad to have significantly less snow to shovel!
In July of 2017, Howard moved to Columbia, TN, and accepted the position of Maintenance Director for Traditions of Spring Hill. He is excited to be in this new role, and looks forward to meeting new co-workers, and getting to know our residents!
