Thanks for working here Thursday: Nancy M. Martinez, Nutrition Services

Campbell County Health is proud of its employees, and we want the CCH family and the Campbell County community to know about the good work that they do for this organization.

Say hello to Nancy M. Martinez the Food Service Supervisor for The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center’s Nutrition Services Department. She’s been with CCH for the last six years. Nancy does have a degree in Quality Control, and is currently enrolled in the University of North Dakota’s Nutrition and Food Service Professional Training Certification Program to earn her Dietary Manager Certification (CDM). The Nutrition Services team provides progressive nutritional care to Campbell County Memorial Hospital patients as well as residents at The Legacy.

Nutrition Services Supervisor Suzanne Struebing, CDM, CFPP, calls Nancy a very driven individual, and loves how motivated she is. “Once she is given a task, she owns that task through completion and will do her very best to exceed expectations,” says Suzanne. “She will be the first one to jump in to tackle a project, she is hands on with her team and her willingness to assist in whatever capacity is required for the benefit of our department is above par. Nancy’s compassion for our residents and their care, our team and her work is the essence of Excellence of Every day.”

Nancy says she was inspired to work in health care because she wanted to help people in need. “Being given the opportunity to work in different departments has offered me the opportunity to find my perfect fit with Nutrition Services,” she says.

Nancy has two mentors and health care heroes here at CCH: Christina Dierking and Legend Lisa Miller. “When I started working in Nutrition Services, Lisa and Christina’s support, encouragement and compliments on my work ethic and dedication inspired me to do better every day. These two ladies gave me the confidence, mentoring and motivation to be a supervisor like them one day,” she says. “They have allowed me the opportunity to learn from their experiences and have given me the ability to grow in my career. As a result, I am working in a position I have been dreaming about for a long time.”

Outside of work, you can find Nancy spending time with my family, playing poker, camping, riding her motorcycle and doing crafts.

We asked Nancy what she likes most about working for CCH, and what excellence every day means to her. Check out her response:

“I enjoy the feeling I get when I am able to help other people and when I meet or exceed others expectations. I would like to thank CCH for giving me the opportunity for professional growth with an organization that I am very proud to work for. CCH has allowed me to grow from a Storeroom Clerk to Food Service Supervisor, and they have given me the opportunity to further my education to obtain my CDM CFPP Certification in Managing Food Service and Safety.

Excellence every day to me means being better today that I was yesterday, and being better tomorrow than I am today.”

Thank you, Nancy for everything that you do for CCH. We are proud to have you on our team.

Is there a CCH employee who went the extra mile or shows you extraordinary service? Give them a pat on the back by completing an Excellence Every Day card.
