Sherry Outten, MBA, LNHA
Vice President, Administration
A longtime resident of Gloucester County, Sherry Outten often wondered what was so enticing about the long commute that she spent her entire career working in Pennsylvania—and not just across the river, but in the western suburbs of Philly. She finally came to her senses and put down new professional roots in New Jersey.
Joining LSMNJ in January 2015 as the vice-president and executive director for Lutheran Crossings Enhanced Living at Moorestown, Sherry stated, “I’m happy to be working for a faith-based organization with such a strong mission and commitment to serving those in need.” In January 2017, she accepted a new challenge as vice president administration for LSMNJ. Based out of the Burlington office, Sherry now works with programs across LSMNJ and serves as the organization’s compliance official as well as privacy officer.
Her career, spanning more than 25 years, has been dedicated to ensuring quality care and housing of seniors. Just prior to her return to New Jersey, Sherry was the associate executive director for The Quadrangle–a 74-acre Sunrise Senior Living Community in Haverford, PA. She earned a BS in Science from Fairleigh Dickinson University and an MBA in Health Services Administration from Widener University’s School of Management and is licensed as a nursing home administrator in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey as well as a personal care administrator in Pennsylvania.
A resident of Wenonah, NJ, Sherry enjoys outdoor sports with her family and is a member of her town’s Dragon Boat Team. She is excited to be able to use her experience to benefit seniors and others in her home state. Giving back is part of Sherry’s nature and work ethic and there is no place she would rather do so than as a part of LSMNJ.
