What she enjoys most about WSC?

“Taking care of the elderly is a passion of mine that was kindled years earlier when my grandmother would take me to visit at the local nursing center. I continue to remember the hugs and smiles that came with each visit and the joy felt knowing we had made their day a little brighter. I enjoy making a difference in the lives of the residents and employees that reside and work at Loris Nursing Center.” ~Melissa
