This month we are so excited to introduce you to one of our Certified Nursing Assistants, Dakota. Dakota has been with Woodcrest since June 2011. Prior to working at Woodcrest, he worked in customer service. He has always wanted to be a nurse since he was a kid and is currently working to fulfill that dream and only has 1.5 years remaining at Gateway Community College. His passion in nursing is wounds!! He loves treating them and learning the different medications used to help heal those wounds. His favorite part about Woodcrest is the relationships and friendships he has built over time. He so appreciates those with his co-workers and the residents he cares for every day.
Dakota is from Kenton County and went to Conner High School. Growing up he had one sibling, an older brother whom he enjoyed camping, fishing, and boating with. He has a 2-year-old nephew that he is very close with, and a boyfriend named Marcell. They have been dating for two years. Dakota loves his German Shepherd/Boxer as they share the same birthday! He loves traveling and arts/crafts.
