What is your position and role at Gillette?
I am an Environmental Services shift supervisor. Prior to that, I was an Environmental Specialist who has worked all 3 shifts (day, evening and overnight). I’m responsible with making sure all patient areas are kept safe and clean. Because I’ve floated to many different departments, I’ve had the opportunity to meet many coworkers from around Gillette.
What do you like best about working at Gillette?
I am a big kid at heart and I love working around children. I also have some health issues myself. Seeing our patients’ courage and strength keeps me going and they make my day.
Do you have any children or pets?
I am the proud mother of two children, a grandmother to six and have two dogs, a German Shepherd and a Chiweenie, plus one cat.
What are your hobbies outside of work?
I am a videographer who has produced and won several awards. I play several instruments and write and produce beats for local Hip-Hop artists. I also fix and repair computers, work in my garden and exercise regularly. For more than 10 years, I directed a Drill Team Drum Corps with over 75 at-risk youth. We traveled around the Midwest competing and brought home many trophies.
What is one fun fact about you?
The one fun thing about me is that I always make you laugh and put a smile on your face. If I don’t have you smiling, I will surely have you laughing. I believe in having fun on the job. It makes the time go by faster and creates a healthy work atmosphere.
