During the careversary celebration Heidey also reflected on what she loves about her job. “Knowing my residents depend on me to keep them safe and to take care of their needs brings me great joy. As a matter of fact, it is not about making money, it is about taking care of my people to the best of my ability.”
She adds, “Ascension Health II is laid back and family oriented. We make our days fun by shopping or having visitors or just enjoying staying at home. It really makes my day to see their smiles and hear their laughter.”
