Meet the Team - Social Services Director


May 4, 2021
Our team here at Hickory Ridge is filled with amazing individuals that put their all into making our facility feel like a home for our residents. We wanted to give our community and families the opportunity to get to know the team that takes care of their loved ones, the faces behind the masks. This week we would like to introduce our Social Services Director, Julie Duncan.

Julie graduated from The University of Akron in 2014 with a Bachelor's Degree in Social Work. After graduation, she worked for 5 years as a Medicaid Case Manager. In 2019, she came to Hickory Ridge and was the social service designee, a few months later she became a license social worker and was promoted to the Social Service Director. Julie loves getting to know the residents and their families and has had a passion for the elderly population since she was young.

In her spare time she loves to travel and play outside with her 7 year old daughter, Braylee. They enjoy going hiking, fishing, camping and, of coarse, going on vacations.

Hickory Ridge is a 164 bed, skilled nursing facility located in Akron, Ohio. It is our mission to make a difference in the lives of the people we serve. Following our company's values of compassion, fairness, integrity, and respect for human dignity, we provide an atmosphere of positivity for those visiting us for rehabilitation or those who choose to make Hickory Ridge a permanent home.
