A Pottsville resident, Ms. Gogno joined Diakon in October 2017, after having served with two other regional senior living services providers for nearly a decade. A licensed nursing home administrator, she was responsible for leading a team that gained an overall 5-star status for that organization’s nursing care center. In addition, she worked for 20 years in hospital administration and patient relations. 

Ms. Gogno holds a bachelor's degree in Health Science and a Master’s in Health Administration degree, both from the University of Saint Francis. 

In her free time, she enjoys rescuing donkeys and horses. She currently has two horses she has rescued and, for several years, has cared for Dominic the Donkey, who visits area nursing homes and community events.
