Sharon wins the appreciation of her co-workers in the kitchen by being the go-to person when there is a problem.
Working against a deadline always requires diligence and the ability to adjust when unpleasant events occur. When the job has three built-in deadlines every day, weekends included, unexpected problems can grow into major difficulties in a hurry.
Her nomination for this award referred to one of those unexpected problems:
“She pulled together a fantastic meal when food didn’t come on the truck. She prepared an enchilada and stuffed pepper casserole to substitute for chicken enchiladas and stuffed peppers. She found a recipe online in her off time. She takes great pride in the food she prepares and does her best to make residents feel at home.”
Thanks, Sharon, for showing a delicious combination of ingenuity and skill when it was needed most.
