Meet Enlivant's 2014 MVV Winners
Compassion. Humility. Integrity. Excellence. Fun. Enlivant’s 5,000 employees bring our core values to life every day at assisted living communities across the country. It is our honor to introduce Amy Havice, Sheryl Morning, Jean Chambers and Jerry Carson: the winners of the 2014 Mission-Vision-Values (MVV) Award.
Here’s a look at why they were selected and how they’re making a difference in the lives of seniors.
Amy Havice, Executive Director of Liberty Place, Port Orchard, Wash.
Amy exemplifies what it means to be a leader by focusing every day on building and maintaining relationships with employees, residents and their families. She makes sure residents feel like Liberty Place is their home and family and, with a dose of good humor, has helped to build a community of excellence.
Sheryl Morning, Executive Director, Worthington Place, Camby, In.
Sheryl has established herself as a caring team leader who goes above and beyond to meet the needs of residents and families. Sheryl has dedicated her life to caring for seniors, beginning at age 13 when she joined Mercy Home’s “Adopt a Grandparent” program. This experience carried her through various positions in the senior care industry and has shaped her belief that everything we say and do leaves an imprint on others.
Jean Chambers, Lead Chef, Sabine Place, Orange, Tex.
Not only does Jean go above and beyond in the kitchen to ensure each resident receives the proper nutrition, she also strives to build personal relationships with employees, residents and their families throughout the entire community. Jean provides more than just a good meal: she’s always there with a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, a hand to hold, and an open heart for colleagues and residents alike.
Jerry Carson, Maintenance Technician, Manning Place, Greer, S.C.
Everyone at Greer Place knows Jerry for his warmth, helpfulness and integrity. He is a champion of quality of life for residents and serves as a role model for other employees. Residents had nothing but praise for Jerry in a television news segment that aired in February on the local news affiliate, WYFF4. Jerry is one of 20 finalists for the Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA) Hero Award, a national competition that celebrates outstanding senior living staff members. Five winners will take home the prestigious award at ALFA’s Senior Living Executive Conference in May.
Please join us in celebrating not just these four inspiring MVV Award winners, but every one of our dedicated employees who demonstrate compassion, humility, integrity, excellence and fun in the important work they do every day. This is what drives our organization and allows Enlivant and our residents to truly thrive.
