Monette Manor Employee of the Month
Robbie Skaggs was selected as the July Monette Manor Employee of the Month.
Robbie has been at Monette Manor for nine years and has worked as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) since 1992.
She and her husband, Michael, live in Arbyrd, Mo. They have two children, Merina, 16, and Michael, 11.
In her "off time" she said their hobbies include doing whatever the kids want to do.
Robbie is attending college at Black River Technical College in Paragould. She wants to major in physical therapy and be a physical therapist assistant.
She helps occasionally at Monette Manor with physical therapy and enjoys helping people.
"I'm whatever/wherever here I am needed," she said. "I will work where I am needed most."
Last week she enjoyed accompanying several residents to the Senior Olympics in Paragould.
"We had a good time," she said. "I love to be part of anything the residents enjoy and see them smile. We are like a big family here. We get along and help each other. After college, I hope to be able to stay at Monette Manor and work in the physical therapy department. I get close to the residents, and the staff and I don't want to leave. Everyone here does their best to make it a great place for the residents and the workers."
She said it was an honor to be selected as employee of the month.
