Marcy Shafer, Catie Larsen and Claire Bredthauer
This great team organized and hosted the 11th Annual Associate Picnic and did a wonderful job! They put much thought and effort into each and every detail making sure that our associates had an enjoyable evening with their families and coworkers. The planning they put into the meals, children’s events and prizes was very time consuming and they didn’t leave anything to chance.
Marcy Shafer, Catie Larsen and Claire Bredthauer hosted the picnic at a very busy time for Human Resources, while we working on the completion of the Long Term Care Transition. They had been putting in long days to complete everything and they did so with a smile and positive attitude.
They went above and beyond our VCHS values and provided fantastic, courteous, customer service to the associates of both the VCHS and VVSV teams. In addition, they helped transition our insurance coverage. With so many projects going on, we couldn’t be more proud of them and we are so grateful for the help and leadership they demonstrated throughout these huge projects! Congratulations!!
Congratulations Marcy, Catie and Claire!
