Pillars in Action: Community
Hello, it’s me Nick!
On July 24th of 2000, I received a call from SJH to interview for a direct care staff position and was welcomed into the SJH community just a few weeks later. I never would have imagined that 17 years later I would still be a part of this community and in my current role as the Facilities Support Manager.
I made the decision to continue working at SJH because I truly enjoy providing compassionate care to the individuals that we serve. It satisfies me to know that our residents need me just as much as I need them in order to remain humble. Their smiles, cries, laughter and all of their unique personalities are priceless.
As Anthony D’angelo says “without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community.”
I genuinely care deeply for my community. I’ve gained several strengths and abilities throughout my tenure at SJH. I am proud to be a role model for my peers and colleagues as well as assist in developing employees as they establish their careers. I honorably carry out the mission and ministry of SJH in a positive and professional manner every day.
I’m so grateful to be a part of the SJH community…..the residents will always be my neighbor.
Nick Smith, SJH Facilities Support Manager
