Liz Donnelly Recognized with National Shining Star Award

Caring Transitions is pleased to announce that Liz Donnelly, the local owner of Caring Transitions NWOKC, has earned the Caring Transitions’ Shining Star Award. The Shining Star Award was presented on February 19, 2019, at the Caring Transitions national conference.

“This national recognition is given to a top performing franchisee who gives back to the Caring Transitions brand and who is deeply involved in their own community. In less than 18 months, Liz Donnelly has led the way in setting the standard for our new franchise owners. She leads by example with her team and her peers and is always willing to contribute to the success of everyone – her clients, her team members, other franchisees and the Caring Transitions overall. Her future is bright and is only matched by her desire to be the best. We were thrilled to present her with the Shining Star Award this year,” Caring Transitions President Ray Fabik said.

Donnelly is a fourth generation Oklahoman who has lived in the Oklahoma City area for more than 35 years. She retired from Oklahoma City University in 2015 and then worked in university relations and residence life for Campus Living Villages. Donnelly launched Caring Transitions NWOKC in February of 2017. She quickly built a strong team that has enabled the business to grow quickly.

“We were able to earn this recognition because of the hard work of our Caring Transitions NWOKC team of highly-qualified professionals. We have a great team that cares about the people we serve and we each take our responsibility to our clients seriously. As we look to the future, we are looking forward to continuing to deliver highly-customized services to meet the unique needs of each client,” Donnelly said.

Caring Transitions’ services are perfect for seniors moving in with family or into a safer living situation as well as busy families and people clearing out the home of a loved one who has passed. All of Caring Transitions’ services are customizable, so clients only pay for the services they need – from managing the entire move and estate-clearing or just getting someone resettled into their new place. Caring Transitions creates a customized plan for every situation, so each client only pays for the services they need. Donnelly said their ability to host successful and efficient online estate sales has been a big part of the growth of Caring Transitions NWOKC.

“Our very popular online estate sale auctions allow us to serve a large variety of clients, especially in situations where an in-person estate sale is not practicable or feasible. Our auctions quickly and safely liquidate our client’s personal possessions while emptying the house in preparation for sale. Although we provide a wide variety of services, the online auctions are part of what sets us apart from other companies,” Donnelly said.
