The honorees represent women from a wide range of industries in the non- and for-profit sectors including among other fields, health care, insurance, education and real estate.
“I share this award with the residents, clients, and members who we serve and the employees of the Arcadia Family of Companies who dedicate their careers to caring for older adults,” said Schulberg.

Additionally, Schulberg initiated a year-long, organization-wide monthly interval COVID-19 testing that included residents’ and employees’ families. She also created “Internal Strike Teams” to test residents and employees, and consistently shared safety protocol and provided updated information and educational materials to staff, residents and their families.
Schulberg received a bachelor’s degree from Santa Clara University, and an M.B.A. degree from Hawai’i Pacific University. She also holds an Advanced Certificate in Gerontology from the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa.
