It is Shannon's passion for the job and her know-how that sets her apart as an administrator. Her know-how comes from over 30 years of experience in the healthcare industry. Her passion for the job comes from her love for the people she works with and serves. She started off as a nighttime receptionist so that she could get her license during the day and eventually worked her way up to administrator.
She loves working at Glens Falls Center because she likes the area and "the facility is extremely close-knit and the teamwork here is extraordinary." With the little free time she has, Shannon likes to exercise and spend time with her kids. She also has 2 cats and a dog and no, they do not get along!
With 24 years’ experience as a Registered Nurse, Amy has all the health care bases covered. Her background in home health care, infection prevention, staff education and skilled nursing/rehabilitation is all the experience any employer would want. But what makes Amy such a special leader is what she talks about first when you ask about her job – her team. “I work with a great team of RN’s, LPN’s and CNA’s who are dedicated to providing the best care to our residents.” And they do. Amy is a hands-on nurse, so don’t look for her at her desk; you’re more likely to find her at a resident’s bedside, or coaching one of her staff on the latest techniques. Unless of course, it’s football season. Then you may have to catch her making game-time snacks and cheering on her favorite team with her husband, family and friends.
Michelle received her Bachelors in Physical Therapy from Russel Sage College. Michelle always knew that she wanted to be a physical therapist, but initially she only wanted to work with kids. So she worked with kids straight out of college, then did some homecare outpatient therapy. After that, she was working with adults and kids, and with a few more stops along the way ended up in Skilled Nursing and discovered the wonderful world of geriatric care. We’re so happy she finally made it to our world. And so is she. Michelle has been at Glens Falls Center since 2010 and loves it. “I love working with the residents and dealing with the new challenges that arise every day. It keeps me on my toes. The residents are always fun and some are even really funny.”
When she’s not helping residents get back in action, you may find her out on the green, golfing.
