After spending a summer as a marketing outreach intern at Penney Retirement Community, I took a temporary part-time housekeeper position, and within two months, became an assisted living facility attendant with the highest medication administration certification score (100%) of all attendants and certified nursing assistants working for the retirement community. Ten months after taking the housekeeping position, I was running Penmor Place, one of the three assisted living facilities on campus.
