October STARS of the Month

Celebrating this month’s STARS Employees, Jennifer Murphy, Staff Accountant, and Josh Cunningham, Fitness Coordinator. Each of these OMM employees have been seen as shining “stars” for our members.

Josh Cunningham has the lucky distinction of being the newest employee to receive the Star of the Month. Starting his OMM tenure in June, he is clearly already making an impression. He is a graduate of Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, OK. Josh comes from a military family, so he has lived many places and countries but considers Claremore his hometown and that is where he graduated from high school. When not helping OMM members achieve their fitness goals Josh is using his fitness skills to climb tall billboards around town – don’t worry he wears a safety harness. One of his many talents is changing out billboard ads. He and his wife, Shayla, have a little girl named Charlott who is one year old.

What his supervisor says: “Josh has been a true asset to the Wellness Team. His enthusiasm is felt throughout the community. He has a great ability to adapt and meet people where they are in their physical journey and help them succeed. He has shown true success in his programming and the members he has worked with,” said Jennifer Rawlings.

Jennifer Murphy is on the OMM Accounting Team and just celebrated her two-year work anniversary. She says she loves the employees and wonderful members at OMM. She was born in St. Louis, MO but spent her high school years in the piney woods of East Texas. Raised on a ranch, Jennifer liked working cattle and showing steers as a child. When she is not working at OMM she enjoys spending time with family, grilling out, or simply relaxing on the couch. Jennifer is married and has a stepson Robert who just started college at TCC here in Tulsa.

What her supervisor says: “Her individualism helps make her a great team player and this is what makes her a great asset to our OMM accounting team,” said Chris Harvey.

What is the STARS program at OMM?

At OMM every employee goes through the two-day “STARS” training program detailing customer service and a culture of service to our members and fellow employees. We want our community to be a place where people work together, engaged and enthusiastic about creating an amazing experience for our members! Where the entire team understands that the customer matters, their work matters and they matter. At OMM we are a place where the red carpet is rolled out for every customer and guest, by every staff person, at every touch point, every single time.

Active Aging Week “Redefining Aging”

What is Active Aging Week???

Celebrating aging and the benefits of active living at any age, Active Aging Week showcases the capabilities of older adults as fully participating members of society. Initiated in 2003 by the International Council on Active Aging®, the weeklong campaign calls attention to and wholeheartedly celebrates the positivity of aging today. It showcases the capabilities of older adults as fully participating members of society and spotlights the role models that lead the way.

Active Aging Week challenges society’s diminished expectations of aging by showing that, regardless of age or health conditions, adults over 50 can live as fully as possible in all areas of life—physical, social, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, vocational and environmental. The objective of the annual health-promotion event is to give as many older adults as possible the means to experience wellness activities and exercise in a safe, supportive environment. It also promotes the benefits of healthier, more active lifestyles across the life span.

Why do we participate in Active Aging Week???

OMM wants to show society what it means to age! We want to Redefine Aging and show society that aging doesn’t mean lose and decline, it means life, fulfillment and having purpose! We are hosting events this week that allow members to express their creativity, keep their mind sharp and allow them to Pay It Forward. We are joining ICAA for this National push to showcase members of the OMM community and how they are true examples of aging well and how they add life to all the programs the Wellness Team implements. We are redefining aging and changing people’s expectations of aging!
