“I am proud that I started the Farmer’s Markets here in 2008. My vision was to increase access to healthy foods and locally grown fruits and vegetables to not only employees, but also to our community. Visitors to the markets get to gather recipes, taste delicious dishes and learn how to include healthy foods into meal planning. By doing so, they can reduce their risk of chronic diseases and teach their kids how to live a healthier lifestyle. And I love the success stories – talking with employees who have made some amazing wellness strides and motivate others to make healthy changes as well.”
“The rehabilitation unit is special because we get to watch these patients progress and get stronger every single day. In many cases, they will come to us unable to do many things like walk, sit up or feed themselves. By the time they graduate from our rehab program, they’re able to do those things and walk out of our doors on their own. These kids are truly inspiring.”
