Grimes, IA (4/21/2016) – On April 1st, Glenice Purscell, the dietary manager at Kennybrook Village, was recognized for 30 years of experience as a Dietary Manager by the Association of Nutrition & Food Professionals. With over 300 dietary managers in the state of Iowa, Glenice is one of only three who have the honor of receiving their 30 year certificate.
Though she has been involved in the Association of Nutrition & Food Professionals for 30 years, Glenice has additional experience of 13 years as a dietitian, for a total of 43 years in the industry. She was first encouraged to pursue dietary management by a friend who worked as a dietician at the time. She pursued her certification through the Dietary Managers Program at DMACC.
Glenice has worked at Kennybrook Village for two years. When the Retirement Community first opened, she worked as a consultant advising the community on state regulations and other necessary documentation. Her favorite part of being a Dietary Manager at Kennybrook Village is cooking and working with the older generation. Glenice brings her own personality to the food she cooks, encouraged by her first mentors to “cook like you would at home”.
Glenice is very honored to receive this award. She has devoted her life to her work and is very proud of her accomplishment. However, she could not have done it alone. She says, “I have had great family support over the years, because in this business, cooking and taking care of people never stop.”
Kennybrook Village is proud to have such a passionate and committed team member working with them! Glenice works diligently to plan meals that are both delicious and healthy for Kennybrook Village residents. She is appreciated greatly by the residents as well as her coworkers.
