Miss Kelly has been with Quest for a whopping 38 years! Having worked as a direct support professional and a cook, she has crossed paths with hundreds of people throughout the years. Miss Kelly's positive attitude and friendly demeanor have gained her admirers throughout the organization. She is a positive influence to those around her and always has a smile on her face. As a cook at Laurel Hill Cluster Intermediate Care Facility, she creates nutritious meals for the individuals we serve, who are her favorite part about her job. "The individuals I serve are my first priority, always. I love Quest and the people here," Miss Kelly said.
Miss Kelly's reputation has brought her positive recognition from inside and outside the organization. At Wine Quest 2019, she helped President and Chief Executive Officer, John Gill, roll the raffle ticket drum to draw the winning raffle ticket of the night!
Brooke Eakins, Quest Inc.’s chief operating officer, reflects on Miss Kelly. “For 38 years, Miss Kelly has filled dozens of different roles and completed thousands of different tasks at Quest. She is an expert in every aspect of providing services to the residents at Laurel Hill Cluster. But, her experience is not what sets her apart. Above all else, Miss Kelly is known for her heart. She has literally dedicated her entire career to loving people and those of us who have had the privilege of working with her are better for it. Miss Kelly isn’t just our most tenured team member at Quest. She is the epitome of who we are at Quest.”
