Dandan Liu is a good friend to all across the Kensington Park campus. On any given day, you might see her out walking a resident’s dog or strolling with a companion. She is well known for lending a kind and helpful hand. Dandan is a dedicated and driven team member, whose efforts are consistently “above and beyond the call of duty,” and for which we are proud to name her Kensington Park’s October Team Member of the Month.
Dandan was born in China and traveled to the United States with her husband a couple of years ago. Kensington Park was her first, and is still her only, place of employment. In fact, she says she’d like to expand her experiences here, perhaps working in the dining room or the activities department. Dandan is a selfless caregiver, which is readily evident in the way she cares for residents and their pets. She has a deep passion for animals, which is why she says her dream career is to one day own and operate a pet grooming business.
Dandan says her greatest challenge to date was paragliding among the mountains of Turkey, an amazing adventure that she says she would highly recommend to others. She confesses that the chef in the family is her husband, who she wishes could switch places with her for the day so she’d know what she’s doing in the kitchen. Ice cream is the food she wishes had zero calories and shopping is the one activity she cannot resist. Dandan takes pride in her beautiful complexion and, in her spare time, enjoys hunting down new skin-care products and experimenting with facial masks.
Dandan says that, if she were to win the lottery, she would first share the money with her family. And in deciding how to spend her portion, says she’d likely travel, an activity that brings her the most happiness. Congratulations, Dandan, on being named Team Member of the Month!
