7/3/2018

How better to celebrate your birthday at work than with cake and being named the Employee of the Month?! That’s just how Dawn Goulet, nursing assistant in Adult Day Services/Home Care, celebrated her birthday June 13th as she was surprised with the news that she is RiverView’s Employee of the Month for June.

Goulet has a long history with RiverView going back to her start at 18 years old when she began working in the Care Center. After three years there, she transferred to Nimens Assisted Living where she worked for 10 years until services were discontinued. After a two-year layoff, she came back in 2015 and began in the position she holds today.

A Crookston High School graduate, Goulet resides in Crookston. She has three children: Alyssa (16), Destiny (13), and Isaias (10). Her hobbies include watching her children play basketball and volleyball, snowmobiling and spending time with family.

“I am very appreciative to have such an amazing work family and to be a part of such a wonderful place to work!’’

Below are comments made in Goulet’s honor:

Dawn has been employed with RiverView Home Care and Adult Day Services since May 2015. She was previously employed with RiverView Care Center and then RiverView Assisted Living at Nimens for approximately 15 years. Every client and staff around her expresses how much they love her. She always thinks of her fellow employees and works as a team player. She takes initiative to make sure we are meeting client’s needs. Clients rave about her skills as a hair dresser and delivering personal cares. She is very gentle and caring towards clients. She has empathy when dealing with client’s feelings. She is trustworthy, honest and dependable. She is flexible to any task that she is asked to do and that needs to get done. She is an exceptional role model for new caregivers and trainees. She has a ton of patients and a quiet friendly sense of humor that brightens everyone’s days. She has helped with different RiverView volunteerism such as Oak Court meals, Spring Fling for United Way and Habitat for Humanity. She is willing to participate in all functions that benefit RiverView and the community as a whole.

She deserves this recognition because in this day and world it is not easy to find such dedication to taking care of others and doing it with enthusiasm and commitment that she demonstrates. She has the gift of being a natural caregiver at heart. She always speaks highly of RiverView and she has professional integrity doing the right things even when no one sees. She will probably not even expect to be recognized because she doesn’t realize that she works at the highest level of excellence every day in her work and family life. It just comes natural. - Linda Nephew, Home Health
