Each month our program directors choose from hundreds of Life Care Professionals (LCPs) to honor one amazing caregiver in each program who always lives the Kennedy Care values. This month, our CuraVitae LCP of the Month is Malerie Zylla!
Get To Know Malerie
How long have you been with CuraVitae?
I have been part of this wonderful team for 11 months!
Why did you choose to join CuraVitae?
When I found out the position was 1:1 care, I immediately knew I wanted to be a part. I have been a part of facility work for so long, I was ready for my job to feel more personal.
What is your proudest moment from your time with CuraVitae?
Hearing that the clients I work with want me to be with them more days of the week.
When did you decide you wanted to be a caregiver?
When I was living in Florida, I thought I was applying for a receptionist job. Turns out I was taking my steps to become a CNA. Once I started doing it, I knew it was something I wanted to do for the rest of my life! I stumbled upon my calling.
What is your favorite part of caregiving?
Being able to be helpful every single day.
What advice do you have for other caregivers?
Love what you do!
What is a fun fact about you?
I have red hair and blue eyes! I make up only a small % of the population.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
Spending time with my family!
Thank you to Malerie and all of our LCPs for always going the extra mile with your care!
