ERCC welcomes new members to board of directors


ELKINS — Three new members of the Elkins Rehabilitation & Care Center Board of Directors — a certified public accountant, an official from Davis & Elkins College and a medical professional who also worked for the U.S. Social Security Administration — bring new perspectives and experience to the organization.

Heather Hall, Robert Phillips and Dena Collett are the newest members of ERCC’s Board of Directors. “All of our board members have a wide range of skills and expertise,” ERCC Administrator Tara Shaver noted. “These three new members will bring all of their knowledge to the table and add distinct expertise to our board.”

Hall is a certified public accountant who is proficient in a wide range of business services including payroll, bookkeeping and tax planning. She is the chief operations officer and managing partner of Carte-Hall Certified Public Accountants, which was founded in 2002 by Hall and her husband, John Carte.

Phillips has been employed with Davis and Elkins College since 2017. He has served as provost and vice president of Academic Affairs since July. Prior to that, he served as chief academic officer and dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Wheeling Jesuit University. Phillips holds a BA from North Central College in Naperville, Illinois, and a Ph.D. from Northern Illinois University.

Collett was employed in the medical industry for 28 years with Golden Medical Group and Davis Memorial Hospital. Collett then worked for the U.S. Social Security Administration holding various positions including operations manager and district supervisor prior to her retirement in 2018.


“We are extremely pleased to add these three individuals to our Board of Directors,” Shaver said. “Our board members hold themselves, our facility and our staff to the highest standards possible, and these three individuals will do nothing less.”
