Ohio Living Mount Pleasant Employee of the Month for September
Posted on September 16, 2022 in
Our employee spotlight for this month is Sandy! Sandy is a housekeeping associate who has been at Ohio Living Mount Pleasant for 34 years. She has worked at our Mount Pleasant Place apartments for the last 10 years. “We clean for the residents every other week [in the apartments]. They enjoy us – they get to know us and trust us. We become part of their family and children’s family. It makes us feel good to serve them.” Sandy gave some fascinating insight on when she first interviewed for her position. “There was a waiting list to get a job. The director interviewed me before I started [which was three months after].” Sandy expressed the campus has really grown during her tenure. “My son went to the daycare. [I remember] when we got the new assisted living and chapel – I actually cleaned for [current] residents’ parents. I run into girls I worked with [in the past]. They call me a ‘lifer’ at Mount Pleasant.” One of the most rewarding things for Sandy is being able to leave each residents’ apartment nice and clean and their appreciation in return. “We treat them like family. It feels like my second home.” Sandy has been married to her husband Richard for 40 years. They have one son and three grandsons. “They play football – always at their games.” Her family are big OSU and Bengals fans. Moreover, Sandy has a twin brother, “[I am] one of 12 children.” She enjoys singing at her church with her husband playing the drums. “I love doing yard work, being with family, with grandchildren [and] love going to the beach.” Lastly, Sandy offered advice for those who are thinking about working here on campus. “Mount Pleasant has a lot to offer: benefits are great, vacation [time] is wonderful. Try it, [it’s] hard work but you can still have fun at it.” Please take a moment to thank Sandy for all she does!
