She previously worked for the firm from 1995 to 2016 in a collection of roles including mental health technician, therapeutic support staff, treatment coordinator, and residential manager. Now, her responsibilities have shifted to include full clinical responsibility for the company on a day-to-day basis. Additionally, she sits on the administrative team for the health system and has input into all financial and operational decisions. Gesing’s service to the region is already extensive with service time to the Warren County CJAB, the Warren County Probation Association, the Warren County Chamber of Business and Industry – Chamber Operations Committee, the United Fund of Warren County, the Chautauqua Tapestry, and Leadership Warren County.
