It Pays to Pursue Education

Congratulations to Fulton Presbyterian Manor staff members who received scholarships from PMMA (Presbyterian Manors of Mid America) to pursue further education in their field!

Shelly Mosley began her career at Fulton Presbyterian Manor in 2014. She started out as a CNA, CMT and is now an LPN. She's currently attending MACC (Moberly Area Community College) and is pursuing her degree as an RN. When she's not at work, Shelly enjoys spending time with her husband, four children and two grandchildren.

CNA Kellie Starling is attending the University of Phoenix online, pursuing her Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Administration. Kellie has been a CNA for 35 years.

"It’s taking its toll on me, and I want to stay in the medical field. It will better my understanding of the business and the things managers have to go through from the professional side of it," said Kellie.

When not at work, Kellie has little free time between housework and homework, but spends what she does with her three children and nine grandchildren. In addition to a full work and school load, she is the guardian for three of her grandchildren.

LPN, Medical Records Coordinator/ Unit Coordinator Elinda Trower started at Fulton Presbyterian Manor as an LPN/charge nurse in August 2012. Elinda is attending Columbia Area Career Center and will then go back to Moberly Area Community College.

"With changes in how Medicare pays, I want to become a certified medical coder, then will finish my RN degree," said Elinda. "I want to ensure I'm able to do my job to the best of my ability."

Elinda has three grown children and one still in high school. She also has one granddaughter and enjoys billiards, target practice, fishing, etching on granite and diamond painting.

Bessie Boese has been at Fulton Presbyterian Manor since 2005, and has held a variety of positions, including Evening LPN Charge Nurse, Day LPN Charge Nurse, Lead Wound Care Nurse and currently LPN, MDS Coordinator. She is pursuing her ADN RN through MACC and is looking forward to setting new career goals. Bessie has four children and enjoys cooking and reading when she's away from work.
