Congratulations to Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Perla Balolong: our February 2017 Employee of the Month.

When Perla was young, her mother wanted her to be a school teacher so Perla took classes in education. But Perla wanted to be a midwife, so she pursued a career and education in health care. When she came to the United States from the Philippines in 1981, she took a CNA course and has been working as a CNA ever since.

She joined Maryville in 2006 and describes it as “a very nice place to work.”

Perla and her husband, Jess, have three children. Every Friday and Saturday night, she loves to go out ballroom dancing.

Please join us in congratulating Perla Balolong: our Employee of the Month.
