Employee of the Month Deanna Giller - Care Attendant
Deanna was born in San Diego, CA and moved to Shoreview MN with her parents when she was five years old. She has been a care attendant for over 6 years.
Deanna enjoys walking her dog, spending time with her mom on the boat and riding horses. If she could travel anywhere in the world, she would pack her bags for Paris to do some shopping and enjoy the delicious pastries that "are like no other!"
She also enjoys spending time with Coventry's fun-loving team, the residents and their families. "It's like we are all one big happy family!"
Thank you Deanna for your gift of time to Coventry!
Bob Odland Environmental Services Director
A Minnesota native, Bob enjoys golfing, fishing, and spending time with his family at the cabin. One of Bob's dreams would be to travel to Alaska for some fishing and to take in the sights.
From changing a light bulb to painting, shoveling the walkway or supervising Coventry's housekeepers, Bob ensures our building always looks nice, inside and out.
Bob says he enjoys doing whatever he can to help our residents and can be found from time to time taking care of minor resident maintenance issues. "I try to make them comfy and happy."
Sherry Christiansen Outreach and Sales Director
I left my home in Kentucky in 2004 and since then, have lived in upstate New York, central Illinois, and now eastern Minnesota. I fell in love with the senior population years ago when I started work at a nursing home as a certified nursing assistant. After working in private duty nursing and at many medical offices, I became a Realtor for Coldwell Banker.
I have three children and three grandchildren and when I'm not being a "helper," I love to craft - from crochet and knitting to painting. My husband and I love to travel, try new restaurants, watch movies and attend concerts. I am excited to be at Coventry Senior Living helping our seniors find home again.
