In times like this, it’s important to highlight those who are stepping up and doing their part. We would like to highlight our very own Patty Phillippe, Executive Secretary. During the pandemic, she has used her own resources and time to shop, choose pretty material, cut out, sew, and create almost 250 masks for our staff, their families, and friends. Many times, she will match the mask to someone’s personality. The dedication and spirit displayed by Patty is ever encouraging. According to Patty, she loves seeing the journey each mask takes, and is proud to know that she is doing her part to keep others safe, and perhaps making a difference in someone’s life. From all of us here at Rural Health, we thank you and appreciate you Patty!
