Walker named as Cumberland Crossing sales consultant 

FALMOUTH — OceanView at Falmouth is pleased to announce the appointment of Shireen Shahawy as director of sales and marketing and Gloria Walker to Cumberland Crossing sales consultant. 

Shireen has served as assistant director of sales and marketing since she joined OceanView in October 2021. Prior to that, she served as executive director of the Friends of the Kotzschmar Organ. Prior to that she was an independent marketing and communications strategist, and owner of Shahawy Communications. 


In her new role, Shireen will manage sales, marketing, and community engagement for both OceanView at Falmouth, and Cumberland Crossing by OceanView, its sister community. 

Shireen replaces Gloria Walker, director of sales and marketing for OceanView who has been with the organization for 19 years.  

“We have the most amazing residents. It is a joy to help people find their perfect new  home in our community. And the team at OceanView works so well together and gives  their all to make this the beautiful community it is,” Shahawy said. She worked with Walker for a year to learn the position, as Gloria moved toward semi-retirement. “I love  that this retirement community created a wonderful path for Gloria to ease into her own retirement. It seems so fitting given what this community represents and celebrates.”  

Walker will be in charge of sales and tours for Cumberland Crossing, and working on a  part-time basis. 


“The residents and staff at OceanView and Cumberland Crossing are like my second  family,” Walker said. “I’m excited to be able to semi-retire and continue to be a part of  these amazing communities. I’m grateful to John Wasileski and the company to allow me to ease into retirement with a part-time schedule in what I hope will be a win-win situation as a continuing member of this wonderful team!”
