Marysol IbarrientosHuman Resources Assistant, Windsor Park
I want to thank Marysol for the many ways she notices when I need help and offers to assist me. She recently offered to conduct 2 of my SAIDO sessions knowing that I was very busy that day and handling other priorities. She rearranged her time to be able to go to SAIDO and ensure the residents had their sessions. This is just one example of the many times she notices and offers to assist. Another example is the many times she helps fill in at the reception desk when she's needed to support that team. They can count on her, just as I do! Thanks for being so responsive Marysol!

Karen KananHealthcare Administrator, Mount Miguel Covenant Village
Karen and her team literally greeted us (Central Office team doing a site visit) at the front door with M&M's in hand and soda in the fridge (she'd asked before what our favorites were). I saw her repeatedly pick up trash and mitigate safety concerns as we walked through the building as well as always being professional with a smile. It was a pleasure to work with her and her team. Her leadership at MMCV Health Care Center is already showing and it's an exciting thing to see.

Kim MannySales - Administrative Assistant, The Holmstad
Kim has done an amazing job of being the glue of the Sales Department at HOLM. With Lindsey on maternity leave, Kim has had her hands full supporting the department flawlessly. You would think she has been with CRC for years but she just celebrated her first anniversary. She is eager to learn, responds quickly to inquiries and all around is an amazing person to work with. I appreciate her and I know her team does too. Thank you Kim!
