This month we are very thankful for all our hard-working employees! We are excited to highlight our November STARS Employees of the Month – Irene Brown, Life Enrichment Coordinator, and Tammy Pittman in Housekeeping.
Irene Brown – Life Enrichment Coordinator
Irene Brown is full of energy and always on the go! She was born and raised in Tulsa and is a graduate of Memorial High School. “I love the Members,” said Irene.“Some of them I’ve known all my life through Boston Avenue UMC; others I’ve met as I or they arrived, but they all have a story to tell and are wonderfully warm. I love getting the opportunity to explore people, places, and things with them.” Irene just celebrated her seven-year work anniversary in October. She has a B.A. in Music and French from Emory University in Atlanta, GA. When she is not organizing and planning activities for OMM members, she spends time with her husband, John, of 22 years and her two children John Jr. and Marjorie. A little-known fact about Irene is that her first job was in opera management – she lived and worked in opera companies in Philadelphia, Cleveland and Chicago.
What her supervisor says: “Irene has an attention to detail like no other, which allows her to surprise and delight the members. She provides superb programming that gives members meaning, joy and enriches the lives of everyone at OMM. I’m amazed every month at the events and programs she plans and executes,” said Jennifer Rawlings, VP of Wellness.
Tammy Pittman – Housekeeper in Crestwood
Tammy Pittman has been on the OMM Housekeeping Team since 2012 and works in Crestwood on the second floor. When asked what she loves about her job she smiles and says, “I enjoy getting to know the members and helping them in any way I can.” She was born and raised in Tulsa and is a graduate of Nathan Hale High School. Some of her favorite memories are going to the Admiral Twin drive-in movie theater as a child and then taking her children. She enjoys crafting, crocheting, quilting, decorating cakes, reading and watching movies. Tammy is the mother of three grown children, ranging in ages from 25 to 30.
What her supervisor says: “Tammy has worked here since Crestwood’s opening. We value the time that she has served here at OMM. Her willingness to go above and beyond for the people she serves makes her a true STAR,” said Cathy Green, Housekeeping Manager.
