Judson Spotlight Award Winners – June, July and August

In 2019, Judson Senior Living began an associate of the month program in order to recognize the excellent performance of our associates. Each month, nominations are submitted by residents, associates, or managers and are voted upon by a workforce development committee.

Congratulations to the winners of the Judson Spotlight Awards from June to August 2019!

June 2019

Robert Jones – Environmental Services, Judson Manor

“Robert is the epitome of a team player. He always is ready and willing to assist and does so with patience and a positive attitude. He is here early and stays late. He never gives up until a solution has been found. My job would be much more difficult if I couldn’t count on Robert.”

“Robert always takes the time to stop and listen to questions, comments and requests for assistance. He is one of the nicest, kindest, most helpful associates we have. Kind words, smiles and always fast to help. Robert seems to be here beyond regular hours A LOT. He goes above and beyond in loyalty and dedication. He is quite special!”

Kristine Webber- Community Life & Transportation Coordinator, Judson Park

“Kristine is one of the hardest working people at Judson Park, always giving her fullest effort to any task. Just one example, she throws herself into the weekly happy hour, racing around to serve the residents who stay seated and somehow also manages to be a serene and gracious presence behind the bar. Because of her, the happy hour is something that everyone enjoys and looks forward to.”

“Kristine gives 200% to her many responsibilities at JP. She regularly stays after hours to manage evening programs and to meet deadlines on various projects. She oversees transportation arrangements. She is highly skilled at publication design and production and is responsible for the monthly JP newsletter and all signage and mailings for the Howson Gallery. She is also the principal person in charge of installing and taking down the gallery exhibits. Wherever something needs to be done, Kristine is there to take care of it.”

Emma Lavender – Environmental Services, South Franklin Circle

“Emma puts a great deal of care into her work. You can see that in everything she does. She is engaged with members and very helpful to both members and staff. She always has a kind word for someone and a smile on her face.”

July 2019

Pam Trevis – Sales Director, Judson Manor

“Pam is always very friendly when I see her.  I have watched her interact with others and she appears to have a wealth of knowledge.  She communicates well and always has a smile.  Plus you can usually find candy in her office which is always helpful.”

Gayle Johnson – State Tested Nursing Assistant, Judson Park

“This is to nominate Gayle Johnson, an aide at Judson for almost two decades. She is a model of service and care as she moves amongst the residents on Ambler Court. She has served on almost all other floors but has been anchored at Ambler Court since its opening. There is absolute consensus that she is the person that most emulates health care services at their best. Gayle not only cares for but is able to empathize with those whom she services at all times. She goes beyond her duties to solve problems that need attention and she does it in the right way – with care and kindness. Her personality allows her to enjoy the residents while being totally professional. This nomination is to honor all these fine attributes of this nominee as she deserves to be a Spotlight Award Winner.”

Tabitha Warren – Concierge, South Franklin Circle

“In addition to performing her job at an exemplary level, Tabitha demonstrates an extraordinary commitment to our residents, associates and to the overall community of SFC. Tabitha takes it upon herself to provide exceptional support and service to everyone she encounters at the concierge desk. She discerns quickly their individual needs and moves efficiently to provide key information, recommendations, or direction. Beyond this, Tabitha has volunteered her personal time over the past year to teaching personal fitness classes to associates twice a week. She designs, plans and executes exercise programs that encourage participation at all levels. Tabitha is a motivated and inspirational person that embodies the true meaning of Bringing Community to Life. Tabitha is a pure delight. She is always positive and helpful in every way. Tabitha finds answers to most questions and refers to someone else when needed. I have watched her   handle multiple personalities and always remain calm and efficient. She is a stable force when things get hectic. It is a joy when I call or see her in her in person.”

August 2019

Theodora Ashburn – State Tested Nursing Assistant, Judson Manor

“Theodora is being nominated because every day she demonstrates Judson’s core values! In addition, she has shown leadership, compassion, and integrity while continuing to be a part of the Judson team.”

Elaina Rowland – Judson Health Center Director of Admissions, Judson Park

“Elaina embodies every Judson Core Value.  She treats residents and co-workers with the utmost respect.  She is one of the hardest workers – she never leaves a job undone often staying late to make sure we have everything we need and we are ready to take a new admission into the health center.  She is a great collaborator and she is willing to take on ANY task in the service of our residents regardless of whose responsibility it is.  Elaina is totally committed and dedicated to bringing the best life to our residents.  During the last power outage she would not leave even though it was 8pm because she told me that “we have seniors here who need to be taken care of.””

Benjamin Oliver – Security, South Franklin Circle

“Ben always goes above and beyond to help our team members with our needs.  His smile lights up a room with cheer.  I feel comfortable with him being here.”
