Recreational Activities Officer – Acacia Centres
When did you join Columbia?
7 years ago and not leaving unless someone literally picks me up and throws me out! That would be because I have too much fun.
What attracted you to Columbia (ie why did you work for Columbia)?
Honestly it was very close to home (3 min walk). Attitude change in the first couple of weeks. Started as AIN. Great team to work with. Everyone was very direct and each individual had their own expectations about the care and services Columbia provided and stands for.
What is your role now? Please explain what you do & if you are full time, part time or casual
I’m an RAO I represent Columbia, with the help and guidance of Don and D. Don. I am the spokesperson and have taken the responsibility and obligations to the company, residents, family members and co workers to make sure we meet these services we provide.
What do you love about working at Columbia?
Challenging, fun, everyday is different but most of all it is REWARDING. I can honestly say I leave work knowing I did my best and can say I enjoy my work and working with the greatest team through the ups and downs. At Columbia you will not find any other workplace that provides so much resources and education to make our work easier, safe and clean to work in.
