If the weather is bad, she comes in early. She is constantly thinking outside the box with how we can best help our residents.
Respect: She is always willing to listen and give valuable input to resident needs or LTC development.
Compassion: She is compassionate about her work, residents and families that we care for. If she ever needs to be in charge, we can trust her to make the right decisions.
