Employee Spotlight: Celeste Martinez
Our new Dining Services Director, Celeste Martinez describes in her own words how she got here and why she’s so proud to be working at Wichita Presbyterian Manor
In 2018, my health care journey commenced as a dietary aide in my hometown of Garden City, setting the stage for my professional development. Later that year, I relocated to Wichita to pursue an alternative area of study and seized a role at Wichita Presbyterian Manor as an Independent Living server.
My tenure as a server presented me with an opportunity to build enduring connections with residents, granting me moments of fulfillment every day. Following my year-long stint as an Independent Living server, I was offered a cook position at Presbyterian Manor, a decision I embraced enthusiastically. The Manor has provided me with avenues for career progression, enabling me to acquire proficiency and expertise that impacted my decision to embark on a new path.
As the newly appointed Director of Dining Services at Wichita Presbyterian Manor, I am fortified by the opportunity to uphold the proud tradition of fundamental principles and benchmarks that both residents and leadership hold in high esteem.
