Janelle Shaw Administrator Rae-Ann Suburban

That smiling face at Rae-Ann Suburban is new Assistant Administrator Janelle Shaw.

A native of Wauseon, Ohio, Janelle earned a Bachelor of Science in Gerontology with a Specialization in Long Term Care and a Bachelor of Applied Health Science in Health Care Administration with a Specialization in Long Term Care Administration from Bowling Green State University.

She came to Westlake for her internship as an Administrator in Training (AIT)   May 2014. After she passed her examination, she was officially licensed as a Nursing Home Administrator and was offered the position of Assistant Administrator by Rae-Ann.

“I couldn’t happier to be a part of this team and work with the residents and families here at Rae-Ann,” says Janelle. “Throughout my early college years, I realized volunteering at local nursing homes was something I really enjoyed and became very passionate about. People started saying I was a ‘natural’ for this field and I began to see that they were right.

“Working with and helping older adults is something I look forward to every day,” she adds. “I continue to find myself popping in on the weekends to make visits to residents or help with a meal. I think I’m truly lucky to say I’m a person that loves my job!”
