“I feel so fortunate to have Rona Gladden join the Las Vegas Senior Lifeline team. She has a calm confidence that is well earned through her 25 years of experience,”   said Lisa Popovsky, Director of Las Vegas Senior Lifeline of the Jewish Federation.  “During her interview, Rona told me she enjoyed working with the senior population. But the first time I saw her interact with our seniors I knew that she more than enjoys working with seniors, she truly loves just being around them.”  

“Of all the positions I have held I always find those where I was able to work with seniors the most satisfying. Providing services can be very complicated, but I think that sometimes they just need someone to listen.  I am very blessed to have this opportunity. ” states Gladden.
