We're proud to introduce our December Employee of the Month, Shaquita B. The care she provides to our seniors is worthy of recognition. We love having her as part of the A Place at Home team, and once you get to know her, you'll understand why.
APH: What got you interested in caring professionally for others?
SB: I took care of my mother when I was a teen. I recognized it was something that was not only rewarding, but also something that I was good at.
APH: How long have you been a CNA?
SB: I've been a CNA for over 12 years. I received my license in 2004.
APH: What do you like about your job with A Place at Home?
SB: I enjoy what I do. Being physically able to do things for someone that cannot do them for themselves is a blessing. I also enjoy meeting new people and I feel like caring for others is something that comes very naturally.
APH: What do you do when you are not working?
SB: I have six children, so when I'm not working, I'm having family time.
APH: What is one place that you would really like to visit?
SB: My dream is to one day take my kids to Disneyland.
Thank you Shaquita! Your positivity and compassion toward our clients is so important to the care we offer. We appreciate everything you do.
