Monthly our Claremont Place residents, staff, and family members recognize a team member for Starfish of the month.
July 2017 Starfish Recipient: Teresa Campos
Teresa Campos, Assisted Living Caregiver, came to us like a breath of fresh air in December 2016. Since moving to the United States from Peru in 1983, Teresa had worked in the retail industry. With a lifelong history of serving others, Teresa took courses in Medical Assisting some years back and had not found a position, yet was able to provide the care her mother needed.
With a love for people, a desire to work hard and be part of a team, and always ready with a song, Teresa found Claremont Place as she drove by one day last fall and came in to fill out an application. It was her genuine desire to learn and help that ALD Cathy saw during their interview. Teresa “loves the team” and has shared that “the people changed my life!” She is a quick learner and she credits co-worker Maricella with helping her learn something new each day.
A local resident, Teresa has 2 daughters, 2 sons, and one granddaughter who she refers to as her “sunshine”. She is so proud of each of them and they are blessed to all live close by and have a mom who loves to sing and dance and shows others what hard work and real happiness looks like!
