March is National Social Work Month: Meet our social work designee, Valerie Eades

It’s National Social Work Month and we couldn’t be luckier to have Valerie Eades working here at Rolla Presbyterian Manor!

Valerie says she didn’t plan a career in social work. In fact, it was the furthest thing from her mind at one point in her life.

“I spent a lot of years raising my family and then did factory work,” she recalled. “It wasn’t until I learned about Presbyterian Manors at a job fair that I even considered a career in healthcare.”

That job fair led to a career as a CNA at Rolla Presbyterian Manor.

“They paid for my CNA training and my CMT licensing,” she said. “Eventually, my fellow nursing co-workers urged me to pursue social work.”

As the community’s social work designee, Eads says she does a bit of everything.

“I love my job and I love my people,” she said. “Every day is different.”

Let’s all offer a big ‘thank you’ to Valerie Eades for all she does to make Rolla Presbyterian Manor great!
