September Employee of the Month: Parmila Chandra

Parmila Chandra received the Employee of the Month award on her 20th work anniversary at Maryville. Parmila came to the United States 20 years ago from the island of Fiji and started working at Maryville the year she arrived in the United States.

She has worked in a variety of roles in the kitchen. She started on the evening shift as a Diet Aide. She was promoted to a morning position as an assistant cook. Parmila moved to a special role in the kitchen preparing the beverages, including the thickened liquids, which is a very technical job requiring precise accuracy. Parmila has excelled in this role.

Parmila’s co-workers say she is very dependable and willing to pick up extra shifts for a co-worker who is ill or on vacation.

Parmila and her husband Shuresh have been married for 45 years and have a son, Lennard, who recently married. Parmila and her husband are looking forward to becoming grandparents in the future.

In her free time, Parmila likes to sleep, cook traditional Indian food, and spend time with her family. She considers Maryville to be her second home and intends to work at Maryville until her retirement.

Congratulations to Parmila Chandra, Maryville’s September Employee of the Month.
