Congratulations to our January 2019, Employee of the Month, Melissa Jorgenson.
Melissa is the Environmental Services Director for CGLC. She oversees the housekeeping and laundry activities. She is also in charge of making sure we are all safe while we work. Melissa began her career as a Certified Nursing assistant, and has taken on the role of EVS Director. She also does the purchasing and handles the organization of all the supplies. On top of all of her duties here she also works as the Assistant manager at the Grand Generation Manor, is an active EMT and on the Callaway Fire Department.
Melissa is married to Pat Jorgenson and they have a charming daughter named Alley. We look forward to Family get-togethers because she brings Alley, who jumps right in and helps! She enjoys walking and hiking, and spending time with her daughter, grandparents and amazing friends.
Melissa’s co-workers nominated her and had this to say about her, “Melissa saw I was trying to load my 11 chairs and folding table in my vehicle after the Family Christmas Party and she came over, loaded the bags of table cloths in my Durango and helped load the chairs and table for me. It was much appreciated after a long day. Thank You Melissa!” They also wrote, “Melissa did a great job organizing, planning and hosting our facility Christmas party. Everyone seemed to enjoy it!”
We asked Melissa why she loves what she does, and she replied, “I enjoy what I do at CGLC because every day I get to learn from experienced, knowledgeable, and charming people who always fill my days with joy. Every single person at CGLC has their talents and special gifts and I love to see the interactions between the employees and residents. I love to hear the memories they share, and to help make a difference any way I can. It isn’t considered “work” if you enjoy what you do.”
We are grateful that Melissa is on our staff. Not only is she a caring person and hard worker, but her dedication to her job means we are all better off and can serve our residents to the best of our ability. Thank you Melissa for all you do.
