Ann Gillespie has more than 30 years of experience as an aging-services professional. She started her career with the U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging, where she worked on initiatives in federal senior housing, and employment legislation. After four years on Capitol Hill, Ann was recruited by leaders in the Continuing Care field to serve as the founding executive of the Continuing Care Accreditation Commission (CCAC). Along with providers, hundreds of peer volunteers and other stakeholders, she led the transformation of the field to become self-regulated and fiscally prudent by reducing the potential for federal oversight while increasing confidence and trust on the part of consumers, lenders and regulators. After 15 years leading CCAC, Ann was appointed Senior Vice President for Shared Learning and Leadership of the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (now LeadingAge). Notably in that role, Ann established the Association’s Leadership Academy and served as a trusted adviser to its CEO senior living systems network.

Ann joined Asbury Communities as its Chief Strategy Officer in 2012 where she was responsible for the development and oversight of the organization’s strategy, positioning the system for the health care reform environment, as well as the expansion of new business lines that included home and community-based services. Before accepting her role at Collington, she served as a strategic consultant and adviser for clients in the government, private and not-for-profit sectors in the Washington, D.C., region. Ann is a graduate of Miami University of Ohio and the recipient of that University’s Scripps Gerontology Center’s Cottrell Distinguished Award for Scholarship, Leadership and Outstanding Contributions to the Field of Aging.
