Ariel Staton of Lincoln has been named the May Employee of the Month at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital in Lincoln. Staton has worked as a Dietary Technician in the Dietary Department for the past four years.
Staton is a 2009 graduate of Lincoln Community High School. In her role as Dietary Technician she is responsible for washing dishes and delivering trays to patients. She enjoys her work because of the people she comes in contact with on a regular basis.
“I love working at ALMH. I get to meet new people every day, work alongside wonderful people and I get to have fun at work! Every day is a new adventure,” said Staton. Staton was nominated for the honor by her co-worker Kathleen Cunningham.
“Ariel always has a smile to greet you! Happy to help no matter which position she is working that day. She often comes to work when we are short even if it’s at the last moment or early in the morning. Her positive nature always makes for a great place to work,” said Cunningham.
Staton enjoys being active so she spends as much time outdoors as possible. She regularly attends Zumba classes and enjoys dancing, drawing and crafts.
