No Comments on November 2018 Employee of the Month!

Congratulations to our November Employee of the Month, Natalie Trumbull!

Natalie is currently a brand new C N A for our facility!  She began her career at the Good Life Center as a dietary aide.  After taking the C N A course and getting her certificate, she transferred to nursing.  Congratulations on your success.

Natalie is the daughter of Dan and Jo Trumbull and a junior at the Callaway High School.  She enjoys playing volleyball, watching Husker football and volleyball, and working out with her niece Rylee.

Natalie’s co-workers said this of her, “Natalie worked very hard to get her C N A certificate.  She was dependable in dietary and has brought that dependability to nursing.  She works hard but I see her smiling when she comes in.  That tells me that she enjoys her work.  Congrats on getting your C N A and thank you for working here!”

We asked Natalie why she likes working at CGLC and she said, “Helping people has always been something I’ve loved.  If I can make at least one person smile, I know I have done my job.  Helping them is my way of giving back and saying, ‘Thank-You!’.  I love my job at the Callaway Good Life Center!

No Comments on October Employee of the Month 2018!

Congratulations to our October Employee of the Month, Shirla Streit.

Shirla is beginning her 25th year as a nurse at the Good Life Center, congratulations!  She began her career as an RN Charge Nurse in this facility straight out of nursing school in 1993.  She is and has been a very loyal and dependable employee, always works her shifts and willing to help out whenever needed. She is a huge part of our knowledge base and a talented professional nurse.

Shirla not only works full time as a nurse, but is also Mom to 3 boys. Twins Colby and Alex are 16 years old and are 10th graders at Arnold this fall, and 13 year old Brendan who is a 7th grader this fall.  She also lives with partner Shane and 1 very solid, excitable boxer named Bella.

Shirla’s hobbies include reading, although we are not sure when she finds the time, and crafting.   

Shirla’s co-workers nominated her and said, “Shirla is a true team player. She worked 6 am to Midnight on September 14th, 2018 due to staffing issues.  She has hardly ever called in and will trade shifts if someone needs to work a different day, and if it fits her schedule.  She always smiles and treats the residents as they are her #1 priority, even when she is having her own problems.

Shirla always has a smile and the residents love her.  She can make a dreary day become sunny and bright with her laughter. We are proud to have her on our team.
