July Employee
of the Month

Congratulations to our July Employee of the Month, Shelby Yeaney! Shelby is one of the cornerstones of our entire Dietary Team. Without her leadership, experience, and expertise, we couldn't provide the excellent care we strive to each and every day. Shelby is in her ninth year as a Dietary Aide. Her coworkers and supervisor couldn't sing her praises enough in her nomination. She is universally beloved in the department and beyond, and her team came to surprise and support her when she was recognized. We preach family and teamwork at CTKM, and there's no better example of that than Shelby and our Dietary Team. Congrats once again to Shelby, our July Employee of the Month!

August Employee
of the Month

Michele Reynolds' client hadn't been feeling well for weeks. Living alone in Brookville, the client turned to her caregiver, her "angel," to help explain her symptoms. The client's sense of smell wasn't as keen as it once was, but Michele unmistakably found the source of her discomfort - there was a natural gas leak in the house. Michele contacted professionals to fix the leak, which could have created an explosion in the basement at any time. Michele is part of Christ the King Manor's award-winning Home Support Division, but she's truly one of a kind. "I just do the best I can," Reynolds said. Her heroism and humility are just part of what makes her an outstanding part of the team. She's reliable, compassionate, and always goes above and beyond for her clients. Congratulations and thank you to Michele Reynolds, our August Employee of the Month.

Her smile and attitude are what truly endears her to her coworkers and residents. She gives them all the one-on-one time and attention they need. She makes everyone laugh and makes life brighter. Her optimism draws our residents to her, and we've never received a single complaint about her excellent care.
