DAYVILLE — Vicki Ericson from Brooklyn was named Westview Health Care Center’s Employee of the Month for July. She has been employed at Westview since February 2014 as the facility’s assistant director of Therapeutic Recreation.
Ericson is a 2003 graduate of ECSU where she double majored in psychology and education. She most recently received her Therapeutic Recreation certification at Manchester Community College in 2016.
When she isn’t entirely consumed with being the best sports mom possible to her two sons, Brady (11) and Colin (7), she can be found happily spending time gardening or watching a Red Sox or a Patriots game. She also enjoys reading, cooking nonstop for her growing boys and, as anybody who knows her can attest, making others laugh.  “Vicki’s energetic disposition and her propensity for humor creates a revitalizing atmosphere that is paramount to the folks here at Westview,” said David T. Panteleakos, administrator. “Vicki lights up a room with her infectious enthusiasm for the well-being and comfort of our residents and patients and we are extremely proud to award her with this accolade.” “I am fortunate to work with some of the best caregivers in the business,” said Ericson. “So to be chosen as Employee of the Month is quite an honor to say the least. I can only hope that my role at Westview touches the lives of all those I care for as much as they have blessed mine."
Doing what I do is truly that which I was meant to do, and I’m humbled to receive this acknowledgment.”
