The PCADV Board of Directors

Welcome to PCADV 2020!

Professional Care Alliance of the Delaware Valley (PCADV) was started 14 years ago by four people dedicated to providing services and expertise that enhance seniors with lifestyle, finances, comfort, safety and transitional needs. Their vision was to network, bring educational programs and build relationships with professionals in the senior services industry. This non-profit organization has grown over the 14 years and we now have over 100 members, including corporate memberships. Our membership consists of health and social service professionals, financial professionals, and anyone whose profession touches the lives of seniors. Our members provide their services and expertise to enhance a senior’s lifestyle, health and wellbeing, finances, comfort, safety and transitional needs. Our growth has been accomplished over the years because of the commitment of the Board of Directors and YOU, the members who support and participate in our meetings, luncheons, happy hours and networking.

I am happy to be serving as President of PCADV and look forward to meeting each of you at our monthly meetings, the second Wednesday of each month.I am privileged to work with a Board that is so committed to PCADV:

  • Vice President – Lou Cristinziani, Specialty Medical Products, Inc.
  • Secretary – Paula Goy-Severino, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services
  • Treasurer – Linda Newsum, Personal Cash Services
  • Program Chair – Mimsye Katz, Katz Senior Services
  • Membership Chair – Peggie Heller, Professional Marketing Services
  • Board Member – Hope Kirschner, Abramson Center for Jewish Life

We also have two PCADV Ambassadors: Scott Ferguson of Care Planning Strategies and Frank Cymbala of Communications Services and Support.

The senior care industry has many challenges. PCADV affords us the ability to find resources for referrals and build relationship with our peers. In addition to our monthly meetings we have an annual luncheon that is attended by over 100 people. We offer vendor tables for sponsors and offer an outstanding program and menu. In the past, we have had an exceptional range of keynote speakers including Gail Sheehy, Vince Papale, Bobby Rydell, Dan Gottlieb, Annie McCormick, and the Philly Phanatic to name a few. I encourage you to please check the PCADV website ( regularly to keep informed of happenings. You will quickly see how PCADV’s website is an invaluable marketing, business and resource tool for our members.

Thank you for your support and membership in The Professional Care Alliance of the Delaware Valley.
