Staff Success Stories
- Associate Director
Employee since 1997
During my positive experience at St. Ann’s, I have grown both personally and professionally. I have had the opportunity to hold positions as a staff nurse, clinical coordinator, nurse manager and reimbursement nurse specialist. St. Ann’s has given me the opportunity to be able to grow within their community.
- Senior LPN
Employee since 1997
I’ve been an employee of St. Ann’s Community for 11 years and St. Ann’s is like home. The employees are always trying to ensure quality care for the residents, and as an organization, St. Ann’s is an excellent place to work. The employees are very fortunate to be a part of this organization, as St. Ann’s is always seeking new ways to provide a positive atmosphere and opportunities for the employees, along with providing quality care and sustaining quality of life for the elderly residents in our community.
- Central Supply Manager
Employee since 1972
On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d rate St. Ann’s as an employer as a 10. I started as a nurse’s aid when I was eighteen and they completely trained me. After one year, I decided that position wasn’t for me, so I gave my notice. St. Ann’s didn’t want to let me go and offered me a secretarial position. I did that for eight years and then moved into Purchasing. Over time, they made me a manager. They gave me the opportunity to keep moving up, and they recognize people when they do an outstanding job.
Employee since 1995
I would describe the St. Ann’s experience as a growing experience. When I first started working here I was a CNA. I went back to school for my LPN; now I’m back in school for my RN.
- Purchasing and Environmental Services Manager
Employee since 1998
When I came to St. Ann’s, we didn’t have a purchasing department. We created the department to reduce spending, increase efficiencies and streamline operations. Going through the process, I was able to sharpen my supply skills and take ownership. St. Ann’s has also afforded me opportunities to advance my skills and grow with certifications and degree programs. I’m now a Lifetime Certified Purchasing Manager and am in a Masters of Supply Management Degree program.
- Social Work Manager
Employee since 2007
The thing that I really like most about working for St. Ann’s is the people—the social workers and my other coworkers of all disciplines. I’m given a lot of support when I need it, and autonomy to do the work that needs to be done. I’ve also received a lot of opportunities to grow in my profession and enrich my contributions to St. Ann’s.
- Food Services
Employee since 1985
St. Ann’s offers good benefits, competitive pay and job security. Job security is a big issue, especially now. I’ve also been able to move around in positions and do a lot here—waiter, porter, pot room, tray line and now the cafeteria. Mostly, I like working here because of the people—people with nice personalities who I like to joke around and laugh with.
- Cherry Ridge Sales Manager
Employee since 2002
For the past 9 years I have been given the opportunity to use my selling skills in a way that helps people plan for their golden years in Senior Housing. Working with the Senior population at St. Ann’s community and seeing their smiles once they have moved in gives me a tremendous sense of fulfillment. Thank You St. Ann’s!
- Admissions Director
Employee since 1993
I have worked in several different capacities at St. Ann’s over the years. I started as a C.N.A. in the early 1990’s. I have also worked in both St. Ann’s and The Heritage as an LPN and most recently joined the St. Ann’s team again in 2006 as the Director of Admissions.
I really enjoy helping seniors in our community find the right level of care within our own continuum at the time they need it. Because St. Ann’s offers so many diverse services ranging from independent living, Adult Day services, assisted living/memory care, rehabilitation and long term care, it’s easy to help our seniors not only find a solution to their immediate care need, but to also help them plan for their future.
