Founder & CEO
Dr. Shishuka Malhotra, MD, FAPA
Executive Vice President
I‘ve grown up in Clinton, Ohio with my family. My mother’s commitment to providing mental health and memory care has always been visible to me and was significant in shaping my perspectives. It is through my mother that I learned more about the realities of mental health care and memory care for many in our local communities. I am currently a senior in high school.
Board of Directors
I went to the University of Akron and obtained my Bachelor’s of Science in Labor Economics. I wanted to work in the medical field because I love to take pride in my job and NB-CR is a great place to work. Even though I don’t directly handle patient care but knowing that I am a part of an organization that helps patients, it puts a smile on my face.
I have 2 young daughters and they take up most of my time. I love to go down to my father in-laws’ cabin and spend the weekend off the grid with no cell service with my family. My wife and I love to take ours kids out on bike rides to all the local parks in the summer. Here at NB-CR, I manage the office, maintain office contracts, Human Resources and maintain facility upkeep.

As a Financial Director, I oversee all areas of finance and administration including: study budget negotiations, accounts payable and receivables, cash management, banking and reconciliations, and revenue tracking. I enjoy working for a small company because you can really see the results of your work and your decisions have an impact on the operations.
Community Outreach Director
Originally from the small town of Ross, Ohio, I graduated from Miami University (OH) with a BA in Medical Sociology and MA in Social Work. Coming from a rural community into a very wealth college town opened my eyes to the challenges many people, like those from my own hometown, face when trying to find mental health & memory care resources. As a result, I have spent my entire career working with LGBTQ, BIPOC and other minority communities-specifically underserved Senior populations. As the Community Outreach Director at the Center for Hope, the best part of my job is seeing how people’s lives are improved by accessing quality care and taking charge of the own mental wellness.
