 Beth Markland

Beth Markland
Spring 2016-2017 cohort

My name is Beth Markland and I hail from the small town of Rising Sun, Indiana where my family owns and operates a funeral home. I am a big believer in the saying, “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others,” and believe that being in this profession is one of the truest embodiments of those words. I am very much looking forward to working in the lab here at CCMS and the experience that will come with it to better prepare me for my future career. I also wish to do my best to serve as a resource for my fellow classmates as they pursue similar academic and professional endeavors. So if there is anything I could help you with, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Nick Nester

Nick Nester
Spring 2016-2017 cohort

My name is Nick Nester, and I am in my early twenties. I am from the small northern Ohio town of Attica.

I am a proud graduate of the University of Cincinnati, and I am excited to be enrolled here at CCMS, the best and oldest mortuary school in the country. If you see me and have any questions about the lab assistant position, don’t hesitate to ask.

My name is Joe Mason and I am from the small village of Philo, Ohio. I am a graduate from Zane State college and earned my Associates in Science upon graduating from Zane State and Philo High School in the same year.

Peyton Whited

Peyton Whited
Fall 2016-2017 cohort

My name is Peyton Whited and I’m from West Chester, Ohio. I’m 20 years old and originally attended Wright State University pursuing a Clinical Laboratory Science degree. I soon came to realize that this degree wasn’t for me and decided to pursue my dream to be a funeral director. Having no knowledge or history in my family of funeral service, it was a big step for me to make this decision. I’m very excited for the opportunity to be a lab assistant and gain experience and knowledge as I complete my BMS degree. If you need help with anything, feel free to ask me questions!

Anna Butcher
Spring 2017-2018 cohort

My name is Anna Butcher, and I’m from a large suburb outside of Columbus, Ohio called Pickerington. I’m a proud graduate of University of Cincinnati, earning my degree in Biological Anthropolgy in 2016. I have no family history of funeral service, but I chose this service because of its incredible mix of science, culture, art, community development, and most importantly, supporting families. I’m interested in specializing in environmentally friendly funeral practices as well as a deeper inclusion of the family in funeral practices. I’m very thankful to be a part of the amazing clinical team at CCMS, and I’m excited to grow in this career while supporting all those who come through our doors. Feel free to contact me anytime!

Emma Miner
Spring 2017-2018 cohort

My name is Emma Miner and I grew up in Brookville, Indiana with my parents and a lot of pugs. In 2016 I graduted from NKU with a degree in Communication Studies, thinking I’d like the consistency of an office job. After working in that field, I decided I wanted to study something more meaningful. I’m really happy here at CCMS and thrilled to work as a lab assitant. If you have any questions about the school or the lab, I’d be more than happy to help!
