BNF Honors Gamble as Outstanding Employee
BALDWYN, Miss.—Baldwyn Nursing Facility recently named Alisha Gamble as January Employee of the Month.
Gamble joined the Baldwyn Nursing Facility staff part time in October 2019 and became full time in October 2020. Her coworkers say Gamble is an “excellent nurse” who communicates her caring to the residents and families, and is an asset to the facility.
Gamble earned an associate degree in medical assisting technology from Northeast Mississippi Community College in 1999. She then graduated with honors from the Certified Licensed Practical Nursing program at Itawamba Community College. She worked in women’s health for around 15 years and primary care for seven years before joining Baldwyn Nursing Facility.
“I always loved one-on-one direct patient care. I love geriatrics and try to treat each resident like my own family member. They have a piece of my heart,” Gamble said. “During COVID they can’t be with their family and we are all they have each day. My heart aches for them and their families, and I try to be the best nurse I can to each one of them, to make sure that their needs are met, and they are taken care of. God blessed me by allowing me to be a nurse, and I try to pass that blessing on each day to each one of my residents.”
She and her husband, Mark, have been married 21 years and have three children: Lawson, 19; Meg, 15; and Gavin, 10. They attend Hillcrest Church of Christ in Baldwyn.
