One Friday morning Jilene started bright and early to make sure that people were at their appointments on time (which isn’t the first or last time she has schlepped into work early)! That takes real motivation and dedication!!

While waiting over an hour for one of the people to get a room…..Jilene showed real patience and had a great attitude the entire time!!

I had the pleasure of seeing first hand just how professional Jilene was with the medical staff at Avera St. Luke’s same day surgery.

Jilene also has a great relationship with the people she supports. She really knew the people who were having the procedures done that day and exactly how to make them feel more comfortable (or as comfortable as you can be while waiting to be “put under”, while being poked and prodded)!!

In the nearly 8 years that Jilene has been with Aspire she has always been a team player and ready to do whatever needs to be done!
