Congratulations to our February Employee of the Month!
Jodie is new to our facility as of November 2017. She is a Certified Nurse Assistant with two years of experience in the field.
Jodie has two children, 2 year old Couper and 1 year old Rayna. Jodie and her children’s Daddy have lived together for 8 years. They also enjoy their 2 dogs. Jodie loves spending time with her children, enjoying music and dancing in her free time from work.
Jodie’s co-workers report that she has an amazing personality and is always happy and caring. This shout out is to remind her of how much we appreciate that smile and positive outlook. The compassion she extends to every person in this home is priceless. Another shout out tells of Jodie assisting residents down to activities. One day, just shortly after we started playing the national Anthem as we do at the beginning of our Morning Gatherings every week day, she stopped, faced the flag and waited until the end before finishing and leaving the room. She also takes the time to communicate the wishes of the residents.
When asked why she enjoys her job, Jodie says, “I enjoy being a caregiver because I genuinely care about the residents and helping support and encourage their needs.” This is evident in everything she does for our residents and co-workers.
Jodie, we appreciate your caring and dedication to our residents and this facility. Your sparkling personality makes everyone smile. It was definitely a blessing to us when you applied for employment in November! Great job!!!
