I work with amazing people at Enumclaw Rehab

Everyone is kind and hardworking.

My family and I moved to this lovely area in 2005, after 27 years in the military. We have come to love our friends and neighbors in the Black Diamond and Enumclaw towns. Our children could finally put down some roots, after literally being transplanted every 22 months.

This community is loved by us — our church, our schools, our scenery, our camaraderie with friends. Eventually, I took on a part-time job at Enumclaw Health and Rehabilitation Center, after raising our three sons. I am honored to work with talented, hard working, honest, diligent, caring nurses, CNA’s, managers, housekeepers, activity directors, business managers and more. These staff members lovce and care for these vulnerable adults in amazing and generous ways every day. They show up to work in a difficult environment, they come back to work after having been sick themselves, they serve folks who cannot manage to do this for themselves.

I am thankful for the many families, businesses, and individuals who have called us, given us a gift, or sent notes to encourage us. You have given us strength and kindness, and we are grateful.
