The Rochester Jamaican Organization writes:
Annika D’Andrea has worked in the healthcare industry for more than 21 years. She is an expert in understanding the needs of individuals who are aging in place. As a leader in her industry and within her agency, she feels that it is very important to lead by positive example. She acts morally and professionally at all times and goes the extra mile to provide support wherever and whenever needed. She is involved not only with her employees but also within her community. She strives to be an empathetic leader, respectful of a work-life balance and appreciates the stressors her employees face on a daily basis.
Ms. D’Andrea has three children, runs her own business and stays active in her community. According to Annika, “My personality is to be active. While I do enjoy the peaceful qualities of life, I have to stay active to maintain my balance. Her family would say, “if she’s not busy they wonder if she’s sick”. This sentiment embodies the RJO Community Leadership and Service Award and is further echoed by Ms. D’Andrea who stated, “I believed in myself even when others may not have. I realize I was born to serve a special purpose and I don’t believe there is any other way. The passion to care for others was born in me. I love to care, and doing what I love makes it possible to thrive”.
Ms. D’Andrea’s personal and professional life is guided by the principles of Integrity, Honesty, Innovation, Quality, Commitment, Respect, and Dedication
We at Tender Loving Family Care are proud of Annika D’Andrea, and Congratulate her for receiving this prestigious award.
