Kelly Hankins Named Employee of the Year at Waukesha Campus

Kelly Hankins, a certified nursing assistant at LindenGrove Communties, has been named Employee of the Year at the Waukesha Campus.

Hawkins, KellyKelly, who primarily works night shifts, earned the honor for her positive can-do attitude, strong work ethic and warm-hearted personality that connects so well with residents.

She’s earned such a high-level of trust from some residents that they request her care even if she’s not working in their area – and if she can, she’ll still make her way over and help them out. 

And she’s so well-thought of by her co-workers that many nominated her.

“She’s always working extra to help out. She is dedicated, loyal and really takes awesome care of our residents,” said one employee who nominated her.

“She just loves our residents so much,” said another. “She’s always doing more than what is expected.”

Kelly is always willing to help out to ensure residents receive the best care possible. She regularly picks up additional shifts so staffing levels are met and she has a reputation for being a phenomenal mentor to new employees. Named Employee of the Month in April, Kelly lives the LindenGrove Communites culture of putting residents first in everything she does. If a resident wakes up in the middle of the night startled or scared, you can bet she'll sit with them in their room for as long as it takes until they feel calm again. She regularly goes above and beyond to ensure the people she serves are comfortable and feel safe.

One fellow employee who nominated her summed it up best, “Residents love her and staff love to work with her.”
