The CountryHouse memory care team
The heart of what we do really shines through in our people.
Each member of our team has been handpicked for their natural empathy and is expertly trained in best-practices dementia care. Then, our team learns each resident’s story—their likes, their dislikes, their values, and their past—so we can make meaningful connections. This allows us to provide the highest level of personalized care possible. To provide an even greater level of service, we offer a higher staff-to-resident ratio than most communities.
Beth Gonnerman joined the CountryHouse team in May 2020. A 25-year veteran of healthcare administration, she previously spent time as a long-term care, assisted living and memory care administrator and also held positions in acute care and outpatient services. Her first experience in senior living was as an activities director at a long-term care facility. It was here where she developed a passion for serving seniors.
A graduate of the University of Nebraska-Kearney, she holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Health Promotion. She later earned her Master’s in Management and Leadership from Doane University. She holds certifications as an Assisted Living Administrator, is a Certified Dementia Practitioner and is a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt.

Senior Living Consultant
Lisa Filips joined the Agemark family in June 2019 as the Senior Living Consultant at CountryHouse in Omaha. Just a year later, she took on the challenge of opening CountryHouse in Elkhorn, Agemark’s newest CountryHouse community.
Lisa has more than 20 years of experience in sales and marketing, with past roles managing large inbound and outbound sales teams. Her accounts included Disney World Reservations and Home Instead Senior Care. While working with Home Instead, she found passion for serving seniors and their families. This, combined with fond memories of spending time with her grandparents, prompted a move to Agemark.
“I’m so excited to be part of the Agemark family. My role has given me the opportunity to learn and grow both personally and professionally. My favorite part of the job is serving local families. Helping them each step of their journey to finding exceptional care is an honor.”
A native of Overland Park, KS, Lisa holds a Bachelor’s degrees in Psychology and Business Administration with an emphasis on Marketing from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She’s currently working towards completing a Master’s degree in Gerontology from the University of Nebraska-Omaha.
