When a patient’s Spanish speaking family initially calls Angels of Care to seek home health for their child, there’s a good chance they’re going to speak with Juanita Griggs, our Bilingual Intake Coordinator. Juanita is a ray of sunshine and has an unparalleled dedication to her clients, patients, colleagues, and to Angels of Care. After being with us for 3 years (this coming October) Juanita knows all of the ins and outs of the intake department and is an asset to AOC. She says that the best thing about working at AOC is “the feeling that we have made a difference in a family’s life” and we have no doubt that Juanita does that on a daily basis.
In addition to being an outstanding employee, Juanita is a wonderful individual who is passionate about her husband and children. She describes her husband, Lonnie, as her “rock” and her children as her “life”. In fact, she loves her family so much that when asked if would ever want to trade places with someone in history her response was, “I wouldn’t trade places with anybody because that would mean I wouldn’t have my family!” She says that her kids inspire her to do her best every day and keeping them smiling and laughing makes all her hard work worth it. #bestmomever
While she may not want to take a little vacation from life to trade places with any celebrities, she has no objections to getting away on a vacation every once in a while! Her favorite place to visit so far has been her honeymoon spot, Cozumel. She loved the beach, the sand, and of course, the margaritas! In the future, she would love to travel to Egypt. She is fascinated by its history and culture, wants to visit the pyramids, and maybe even find a little adventure while she’s there! When she’s not day dreaming about jet-setting, she loves doing handy chores around the house, although she is self-admittedly not very good at it (ha!), binge-watching Little Women of LA, and coloring in coloring books.
Juanita, thank you so much for all that you do at Angels of Care. You have shown your love for AOC for 3 years and we hope that you see how much you’re appreciated here! Congratulations on being Angels of Care’s August 2019 Office Employee of the Month!!
