What she enjoys most about WSC?
“I have always enjoyed long term care because it is a way for me to give back to my community. I enjoy having a positive daily impact on the lives of the residents. It is rewarding to me to get to know each resident’s story and their history. Each resident once had a job, a hobby, an interest, and a love for something. Getting to know each resident allows me the opportunity to provide better care for them. It is also rewarding when I can put a smile on their face and remind them of a happy time in their life. My goal is to provide skilled care in a “home like” environment. I thoroughly enjoy my role as Director of Nursing because I have the opportunity to work with each department to provide the best care possible for our residents.”
