I enjoy the variety that each day brings at St. Ann’s.  It has been a positive experience to get to know the residents personally as well as be able to help coordinate large special events with my Recreation Therapy co-workers.  St. Ann’s has been very supportive of me, encouraging flexibility and growth.  I enjoy sharing my energy and sense of humor with the residents on a daily basis.

St. Ann’s Community’s reputation for excellent quality and compassionate care is well known in the community. I have worked in hospitals, rehab/SNF, homecare, and with individuals with developmental disabilities in the past. When I was looking to advance my career I chose St. Ann’s because of their strong team of care providers at every level. There is a culture of patient centered care here that leads to a wonderful resident experience. Our administration supports our efforts in patient care, staff education, and pursuing our personal goals within our fields.   Working and growing at St. Ann’s Community has been an extremely positive experience for me personally and professionally.

During my positive experience at St. Ann’s, I have grown both personally and professionally.

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.

Janice Mascari

Janice Mascari

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.

Rolanda Johnson

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.

Louis Nicolosi

- Purchasing and Environmental Services Manager

Employee since 1998

Louis Nicolosi

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.

- Food Services

Employee since 1985

Richard Anderson

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.

Lucy Lester

- 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!

Kristan Tabacco

- Admissions Director

Employee since 1993

Kristan Tabacco

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.
