Hi everyone!! My name is Melissa, most call me Missy. I tell my residents that Missy is a common name for small dogs with curly hair. I have curly hair, and it’s a way for them to remember me. I have been in LTC for about 20 years, I am still at the same facility I started at as a new LNA. At first I wasn’t sure if I wanted to stay at a nursing home, I thought I would get some experience as an LNA then move on. That completely change after a few months!! I love my old people…they are funny, quick witted, sweet and sassy. I couldn’t see myself any where else.
I am a wife, mother of three, and Nana to one. I have five dogs…please ask to see my pictures..lol!! At this point in my life, I’m ready to jump and take that next step in the nursing field. I think it will be a crazy journey for us all!!
I do not have much writing experience. I tend to write as though I am talking to you, or telling a story. I am a horrible speller, so thankful for my phone.
Anyways… here is to us!!September 6, 2022 at 3:06 pm #10485Sydney FeenstraParticipant
Hi Missy! Wow it is so crazy that you have stayed at the same facility since you first became an LNA! I get it though at my current facility I love all my residents and could not imagine leaving them! Congratulations on furthering your career!September 6, 2022 at 3:27 pm #10486Blair HuardParticipant
Nice to meet you Missy! WOW 20 years 😀 you don’t see that often anymore. My aunt just retired from being a LNA for 40 years at Belknap County Nursing Home. I would LOVE to see pictures of your fur babies!September 6, 2022 at 10:04 pm #10494Samantha ParentParticipant
Hey Missy, I’m sure your ready for a change after working the floor for 20 years! After that amount of time, I’m sure your residents and fellow employees become your family! This will provide you with more opportunities to better your residents care and overall life! Here’s to looking at the future!September 7, 2022 at 5:55 pm #10553Shaleen GilpatricParticipant
