CONGRATULATIONS TO JANCIE, OUR JANUARY 2021 EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH

BIO:

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A CAREGIVER?
I have been an RN for 53 years and have worked full time the majority of those years. In my seventies, it seemed like a good time to retire from hospital work so I did. About a year later I realized how much I missed patient care so I had the good fortune of connecting with Brightstar Care and being hired. It has been a totally enjoyable experience working part time and taking care of one client at a time. I feel very fortunate being out of the hospital and still able to enjoy my profession on a part time basis.

WHAT ASPECTS OF YOUR JOB ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT?
Most of my 53 years as an RN were spent hospital-based in oncology nursing. I also spent 10 years working part-time for an oncologist giving chemotherapy in his office. Both assignments were very interesting and fulfilling. Every day that I worked, I felt I was doing something to make my patients' lives better no matter what phase of their illness they were in. I particularly liked getting to know my patients and their extended families as they were generally with us for a long time.

A FEW WORDS ABOUT JANICE FROM THE BRIGHTSTAR CARE CONEJO VALLEY OFFICE STAFF:
