Congratulations to Kim Fletcher, a CNA at Fort Scott Presbyterian Village who is August’s Bravo of the Month.
Kim started working as a CNA when she was 18 years old at Guest Home Estates, then called Arkhaven.
In 2002, she became pregnant with her first daughter and needed to switch shifts. With no open positions at her current job, she decided to apply at Presbyterian Village.
She started working night shifts, and her daughter was born later that year. Kim now has two beautiful daughters.
She has worked a total of 24 years as a CNA and has enjoyed all the different people she has gotten to know.
“I have learned many different things from the people I have cared for,” Kim said. “Also, I have learned a lot from fellow employees. Working at the Village has been great because you get to know the tenants here and they all have a story to tell and reliving their experiences through their eyes makes for a great story.”
On top of being a full-time associate at Presbyterian Village, a wife and a mother, Kim has started a new role in her life as a caregiver to her parents.
“This is such an honor for me,” she said.
Two Bible verses that are special to Kim are:
- Psalm 91:11 “God will put his angels in charge of you to protect you wherever you go.”
- Psalms 46:1 “God is my refuge and strength a very present help in trouble.”
