Meet Shawnah, Housekeeping

A True Super Star

At Springfield Masonic Community, our employees are super stars! We recently sat down with Shawnah, in Housekeeping so she could share her story and the success she’s had at Springfield Masonic Community. (SMC) Meet Shawnah, a Springfield Masonic Community Super Star!

How long have you worked at Springfield Masonic Community?

I have worked at SMC for almost a year. I started out as a temporary employee and was very sad when I thought my job might be coming to an end. As luck would have it, my job did not end and now my temporary job has become a full-time job.

What makes Springfield Masonic Community different than other senior living communities?

SMC is so much nicer than some places.  It is very clean and feels like one big family. The community members are so nice.  The events for the community members and the staff are always fun. I just love working here!

What do your daily responsibilities include?

I do basic cleaning for some of our community members.  That includes tasks such as vacuuming, moping hard floors, dusting as well as cleaning the kitchen and the bathrooms.

I enjoy helping our community members with some of their personal requests like putting up or taking down a wreath from their front door.  Reaching up to do some of those types of little tasks is definitely easier for me to do.

What are some of your favorite benefits Springfield Masonic Community offers?

I have several favorite benefits. The schedule is really good for me.  Being able to determine some of my hours and days is really helpful. The great insurance coverage is another benefit that I am so glad to have.  People don’t think about retirement when they are young, but we have a matching 403B that I know I will be glad to have when I am ready to retire.

A personal benefit that you won’t find every place is the ability to simply be yourself and know that you are always appreciated.  I have that here at SMC.

What would you tell a prospective employee about Springfield Masonic Community?

Just go for it! This is a great place to work. Come and check it out. I guarantee it’s worth your time.  SMC is better than you can possibly imagine.

Why do you love working at Springfield Masonic Community?

I love my job! Working at SMC has lifted me up. I feel at home. It doesn’t bother me to get up in the morning to come to work.  I never knew I could love a job so much.
