To Teresa Valdez, caring for others and bringing happiness into their lives is not simply her job; it’s her lifestyle. The Santa Ana-based mother of two boys is the customer service director at Country Villa Plaza Healthcare Center, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center offering a range of services to local residents. She spends her spare time serving her community and bringing an irrepressible joy to everyone she encounters.
Valdez is now in her 25th year with Country Villa Plaza, where she began as a nursing assistant and was later promoted to Medical Records Director. When the company created the position of Customer Service Director, Valdez was immediately offered the position given her years of helping and caring.
While Valdez’s position requires her to care for others on a daily basis, her reach extends far beyond her job description. When she is not assisting patients at work, she is dedicating her time volunteering at her church and Alzheimer’s Association, Orange County.
Valdez will be honored at Fairhaven’s Oliver Halsell Care Awards banquet in the fall at Fairhaven’s Mission Viejo location. The banquet honors a year’s worth of achievements among the local community. Additionally, Fairhaven will make a donation to Alzheimer’s Association of Orange County in her honor.
