DAYVILLE — Catrina Vanasse was recognized at Westview Health Care Center as their January Employee of the Month.  
Vanasse is a housekeeper who finds great importance in preserving the cleanliness and pleasantness for all of the individuals present at Westview on a given day.  
Vanasse joined the Westview team in October 2021, and she shares pride with her colleagues for the strength that they have shown persevering through recent years.  
“To be a housekeeper in a skilled nursing facility like Westview, you have to have compassion and heart.”
She lives in Putnam with her husband Dennis and in close proximity to her daughter Hannah and her son Nathan.  
Her son Zach and his girlfriend Kirsten live in nearby Pomfret, and they have recently expanded the Vanasse family joy with the birth of their daughter Olivia.  
Two more sons, Alex and Xavier, serve in the U.S. Navy.
She enjoyed attending bingo at the Garden City Baptist Church in Ballouville as an activity with her mother, sister, and grandmother.
David T. Panteleakos, administrator of Westview Health Care Center, said: “Catrina is such a great addition to our amazing housekeeping department!  She is an integral member of our housekeeping dream team that maintains our facility’s five-star appearance and environment of care.”
