When I came to Goodwin House Alexandria for an interview, the first question I was asked was “why do you want to work with seniors?”
I could not answer the question because I did not think about the job as working with seniors, but working with people. Which is how I responded. I came to GHA at the request of a previous Chaplain in January 1999. We had worked together before.
I continue to stay at GHA and enjoy meeting and getting to know the residents and staff. I have met many varied and interesting people, with wonderful life experiences and stories to share. I have learned from the residents and staff about life, cultures and how to work together as a team.
The Values and Mission of Goodwin House are the core of my life at GHA.
