Congratulations to our April Employee of the Month, Shalina Scott!

Shalina has been with us for 4 months and has made a great impact.  She is a hard worker and has stepped up to do, not only Dietary Cook, but also Housekeeping.  She even gets to do laundry!

Shalina has 4 children, Neal and Rebecca Scott and Jack and Penelope Harisson.  Penelope comes to the center with her mom sometimes and we all get to spoil her!  Shalina’s hobbies include gardening, reading, sewing and cooking.

Shalina was nominated by two employees who have this to say about her, “When there is work to be done or help needed with anything, Shalina is quick to jump in and help out.  On Saturday, we had a water leak in the breakroom.  I asked Shalina for the mop from the kitchen and before I could grab a wet floor sign, she was already cleaning up the mess that I had intended to clean.  On Sunday when setting up the tower garden, Shalina came and lent a helping hand.  I appreciate her hard work and willingness to step in wherever needed and just jump in and do even if she’s busy doing other things!!

Shalina is always willing to come in and help when needed.  She comes to work and helps when someone calls in.  She made dinner rolls and is going to teach the other cooks how to make them.  She makes a lot of foods from scratch and gives suggestions for vegan dishes.  She is always pleasant and residents love her.  When she works in the kitchen, she often works housekeeping that same day.  She is open for change and gives suggestions on how to make something work better.  She is also good at keeping the aides on a good time line.

When we asked Shalina why she enjoys what she does, she said, “I enjoy getting to work with staff here and I love when I get to cook.  Seeing how much the people enjoy the work we put into their meals makes me happy and I enjoy bringing joy to them.  I love to make people smile.”

You make all of us smile Shalina, thanks for your good example.
