Nathan Lafleur is announced as April’s Employee of the Month at Westview Health Care Center. Hired in December 2017, Nathan has become a valuable member of the trustworthy team in Westview’s dietary department. As a Dietary Aide he assists the effort in delivering delicious meals to the patients and residents of the Dayville skilled nursing facility.
Considering the hundreds of meals that Westview Health Care Center provides throughout one given day it is important for the entire dietary department to operate in full cohesion. Furthermore, they all must be able to coordinate and collaborate with the other departments in the building to consider the myriad needs that may arise. Nathan is known for being easy to work with while also being a hard worker.
The acknowledgement of Nathan’s excellence reaches all the way to the leadership of Westview Health Care Center. Their Administrator David Panteleakos had this to say: “Nate presents excellent qualities on a daily basis here at Westview Health Care Center. He is hard-working, dedicated, ambitious, and considerate of his coworkers—all of the right ingredients.”
In addition to Nathan’s achievements as a dedicated employee at Westview he is also a sophomore at Unity College in Maine. Nathan gladly talks about his passion for nature and his pursuit of a degree in Conservation Law Enforcement; attending a school known as “America’s Environmental College.” The great outdoors is not only the place where he wants to build a career, but it is also where he finds much enjoyment hiking and fishing. When he isn’t at work or in the classroom or on a trail or near a lake, Nathan might be found at a golf course or a baseball diamond.
Currently Nathan calls Killingly his hometown and enjoys spending as much time as possible with his mother Nicole, his father Phillip, and his sister Megan. Surely his family will be proud of this recognition, but also for the humble way he accepted it. “I was aware of this award—but being a part-time employee I never expected to be chosen.” Nathan continued: “I am extremely honored to receive this distinction, and will continue to put forth my best effort in being a Westview Warrior!”
