Jessica Yoss was recently named Employee of the Quarter at Covington County Hospital. Yoss is a native of Mt. Olive, Mississippi. She works as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) at Arrington Living Center.
“My favorite part of the job is taking care of people,” said Yoss. “When our residents tell m
e they are glad that I’m there or give me a hug and tell me ‘thank you’ that makes it all worth it.”
In her role as a CNA for Arrington, Yoss helps people with their activities and daily living. This includes helping residents eat, get dressed, transferring them from one place to another and much more.
Outside of her duties at Arrington, Jessica enjoys going to church and spending time with her husband and their four children. In the future, she hopes to further her education and become a phlebotomist.
“I want to go further than CNA work, but I want to continue to help people,” she said.
Jessica’s advice to anyone working in her field is simple:
“Be kind and treat everyone the way you would be treated.”
