On Tuesday 21 April, Peninsula Villages marked a very important milestone for a key member of the Village family. Executive Operations Manager, Jackie Bennett marked 25 years of working at Peninsula Village.
The team celebrated with a very modest, socially distanced celebration in the Tea House where they laughed over the many memories made over the long time Jackie has dedicated to our organisation to date.
Jackie is a huge part of the PVL team. Starting out in the kitchen as a cook, Jackie became affectionately known under the nickname 'Cookie' and still to this day we love seeing her get in the kitchen and come up with some great ideas for our resident meals! From there, Jackie moved up the ranks and is now our Executive Operations Manager, taking care of all non-clinical departments. That includes laundry, catering, our home meal service, maintenance and many of our special development projects.
Congratulations Jackie, you are a much loved part of the team and we are looking forward to making more great memories in the future!
