We take pride in the personal, compassionate service we provide to seniors and their families. Meet our Oasis team, your trusted partner for senior living and resources.
Thank you for your interest in Oasis Senior Advisors.
I was born in Ohio and at age 7, left for the adventures of growing up overseas, with an Air Force family. After residing in Japan and Italy, we relocated back to the states. I returned to Cincinnati shortly thereafter, and it has remained "home" for most of my life. Traveling as a child allowed me a variety of cultural experiences. Traveling is still my greatest hobby and I have enjoyed passing along those experiences to my children.
In my early years, I took on some work through college at a Hospice unit and I absolutely loved working with families and hearing the amazing stories that seniors would share with me about their life experiences. After college, I spent 10 years working in Deaf Education and also in the community helping many elderly along the way to communicate effectively with legal matters, clinical visits, church services, and other interpreting needs.
As an Oasis Advisor, I spend every day helping families navigate very unchartered waters with their aging loved ones. Often, there are many layers of needs, and it is our job to help uncover all of those needs and come up with a solution. We not only advocate for the best solution for our clients, but also for their families who are often the caregivers.
Advocating for our seniors in our community is top of mind for me, daily. I co-chair the Butler and Warren Counties Walk to End Alzheimer’s, and I am very passionate about their cause. I also sit on the Board of Directors for a local nonprofit, Community Aging Resource Experts (CARE). I invest in my employees so that some of their work day can also be spent advocating and being involved in local programming with other organizations.
I sincerely enjoy people, and especially enjoy helping others! While this moment in time may feel overwhelming for your family, having my guidance and support can help ease a difficult and time-consuming process. I am committed to taking the same vested interest alongside your family to find the best fit possible for your loved one.

She loves being in a position to connect and help aging adults align with the care and support they need to maintain independence while enhancing their quality of life in a safe environment.

She enjoys creative expression through art and spending time with her family and friends, while appreciating the “little things” in life. She is affiliated with the Giving Voice Foundation and C.A.R.E. (Community Aging Resource Experts), both 501c3s serving the aging community of Cincinnati with local programming and education.

Debra Jaspers joined the Oasis Senior Advisors Mason team, as a natural transition to follow her passion for helping others.
Debra was born in Ilion, NY (upstate), where she spent much of her childhood before moving to South Florida at the age of 13. At that life juncture, she went to work for her family business until graduation.
Her 35 years of hospitality and serving others lead her the senior living space but not before management success with large companies including: William Sonoma, Pottery Barn, Starbucks, Home Depot and Cracker Barrel.
At the end of every day, Deb’s goal has always been to make sure the people she serves in these roles have the best possible experience. Deb found a passion throughout her management experience, working with and helping seniors. She eventually joined the management team with YMCA, and became a National Director, working with seniors in the Silver Sneakers program and encouraging seniors to live their best and healthy lifestyle.
Once again, her passion for seniors took flight, and she landed at Evergreen Retirement Community as the Director of Hospitality, then the Director of Sales and Marketing for Senior Lifestyle at the Sheridan of Mason. The hardest role of her life entered in 2020, when she helped to manage her community through the pandemic. As they transitioned in 2021 to new ownership with Anthology, she continued to serve as the Director of Sales and Marketing, and love on her residents as they chose their new home.
One of Deb’s greatest passions is to help seniors find the right community to age in place and live their best life.
Deb immensely loves and cares for her own mother, suffering from the disease of dementia.

“When my mom was being released from a nursing facility but wasn’tyet ready to return home, I started to look for a place for her myself, and it was overwhelming. Without Oasis help, it would have been a long, confusing & time-consuming process. With his help it was quick & doable.”
