Familiar face, new calling
Kellie Starling started at Fulton Presbyterian Manor in December 2014, though family needs took her away in 2015. She returned in 2016, and recently took a position as Life Enrichment Coordinator. After everything she's been through, she's excited for the new opportunity and new way to serve residents.
"I had gotten custody of my grandkids in 2015 and didn’t have childcare, so I wasn't able to continue working. Then my oldest grandson was diagnosed with AML in August of 2015 and he passed away Feb 3., 2016. I waited for a bit to come back to make sure I had daycare lined up and my court stuff for the kids was done," said Kellie. "I’m looking forward to this position as a new beginning for me. I’ve been looking to do something different and I do believe this will be it. I am excited, but at the same time nervous that I will mess up."
Being nervous about a new position is natural, but we have faith in Kellie and her abilities. She's been a CNA since 1985, and is very dedicated to her work, though her primary focus is at home.
"When I’m at home or in free time I like to spend time with family. I have always put family first and it makes life so much better. I have a busy house," said Kellie.
We're glad Kellie has found her way back to Fulton Presbyterian Manor, and look forward to her fresh perspective as life enrichment coordinator!
