Resident Services Assistant
By Melissa Halvin
I am Melissa Halvin and I am the Resident Services assistant. My office is located in the hub of the Snell Community Center, directly across from the Paul and Carol Boll Wellness Center. Stop in anytime as I love meeting all of our wonderful residents. I am here to help in any way possible.
I am an alumni of Penn State, University Park, where I received my degree in Therapeutic Recreation in 1996. This has helped me in all of my best jobs and will help me better serve our residents. I previously worked for HealthSouth Rehab in Aquatic Therapy. I also worked at Philhaven Hospital, ReMed Recovery Care Center where I specialized in working with adults who have had brain trauma or injuries.
Here at Lebanon Valley Brethren home under the leadership of our Resident Services Director, Mary Lee Harpel I will be helping to plan daily events for our residents, writing our Independent Living Newsletter and I will serve as our Volunteer Coordinator.
I also feel that my role here is to help solve problems for all residents and potential residents. Whether it’s giving them help with signing up for a bus trip, answering questions about our community or just lending an ear to a resident who needs someone to speak with. No problem is too big, too small or too complicated. I hope to bring new and exciting programs and clubs to our beautiful campus. I look forward to chatting with you in person very soon.
