July 2019 Employee of the Month – Dawn

Dawn Vaningan, an Environmental Services Technician, has been nominated as our July Employee of the Month, by many of our CNAs and RNs. She has worked with us for a little over five years and says her favorite thing about working here is, “a tie between getting to know the residents and helping them and the coworkers I now think of as friends.”

Kevin Larson, Administrator and CEO, says “Dawn is an excellent selection for Employee of the Month! She is certainly a person that is always concerned about the residents and whom residents depend on for many things. Dawn’s calm and confident manner, even when things can get a little hectic or busy, is always appreciated.” Ginnie Prechel, Director of Nursing, echoes, “She does a great job! She is well liked by staff and residents alike.”

A few fun facts about Dawn include that she owns a rescue cat named Chloe, has always dreamed about going to Australia and her favorite foods are “pretty much anything breakfast related or ice cream.”

We appreciate you so much Dawn! Thank you for being a valuable member of our team and for all of your hard work. Congratulations!
