Justin Olsen is the February Employee of the Month at Westview Health Care Center. As a Billing Specialist for the Dayville health care facility, Justin is an integral part of the operation. It’s a team that performs a big task by processing complex medical transactions for the various patients that are treated at Westview. In addition to his thorough knowledge of business systems, accounting practices, and health care administration, he has a fun-loving energy that invites everyone around him to smile just a bit more.
Currently living in Boylston, Massachusetts, Justin maintains strong roots to the Killingly area. He grew up in the area of Cook Hill Road and graduated from Killingly High School among a loyal group of friends, and at the time, he even worked on the maintenance staff at Westview. From there, Justin went on to earn degrees from the New York Institute of Technology in Westbury, New York as well as the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in Worcester, MA—there, earning an MBA in Healthcare Administration. He briefly worked in the Worcester area before returning to Westview, this time finding his place in the business office. 2019 marks his tenth year with the organization, and that has amplified his appreciation for this award.
“I am extremely honored to be receiving the Employee of the Month Award," stated Olsen. "I should admit I was a bit stunned when I learned about my nomination. There are so many fantastic employees at Westview; it is a tough award to win. Being part of this Westview team for the past ten years, watching the facility grow, it has all been nothing short of amazing.”
Justin’s words here are a brief summary of the pride he shows daily amongst his colleagues. Director of Billing/Fiscal Systems, Michael Panteleakos stated, “Justin has been a pleasure to work with for the last 10 years. His knowledge, attitude and ideas have been an integral part of the success of our business office, thereby contributing to the overall success of Westview Health Care Center. This award is well deserved.”
In his spare moments, Justin can be found in a variety of places. First and foremost he loves spending time with his wife Abita and their two daughters Aryana and Aliyah. As a proud father he lists “watching my beautiful girls grow” as one of his favorite activities. Justin collects even more family memories by traveling with a range of relatives whenever possible. He’s an avid golfer, and often has a prominent presence in the local circuit of charitable golf tournaments. If he’s not lacing up his golf spikes you might find him stepping into a pair of sturdy boots to spend some time on his family’s hunting preserve. As much as he is an active sportsman, he is an equally passionate sports spectator. Saying that Justin is a fan of New England sports is like saying a plant is a fan of water, and he maintains a working knowledge of the discussions around the Celtics and Patriots at all times. Most recently, Justin finds himself raising and training a young Münsterländer Pointer named Cooper. This friendly pup is a breed that’s well-qualified as a sportsman’s companion and family’s beloved dog. The care and consideration that he is currently devoting to this canine exhibits the same careful approach that Justin brings to every pursuit. Whether it is because of his upbringing in a strongly interconnected family, the tightly woven bond he maintains with his childhood friends, or the success he has seen through the unity of athletic competition, it is clear that one of Justin’s signature traits is his commitment to the groups of which he belongs.
