The Face of Cassia


Emerald Crest Certified Nursing Assistant Mary Clark

We’re excited to introduce you to Certified Nursing Assistant and Resident Coordinator Mary Clark to celebrate National Nursing Assistant Week between June 16 and June 22. Mary has worked at Cassia’s Emerald Crest of Burnsville location for the past three years.

“Mary comes to work with the most contagious SMILE on her face— and residents light up when they see her,” says Director of Housing Jillian Haugan. Mary cares just as deeply for families as she does for residents, and goes the extra mile to create relationships filled with love and trust. She truly embraces all who come into Emerald Crest! The team at Emerald Crest of Burnsville cannot say enough good things about Mary. She is one in a million!”

“Mary is always bubbly, happy to be helping and willing to do anything that needs to be done,” says retired firefighter Wyeth Hecht, who sees Mary frequently when visiting his wife.

How does Mary Clark describe Emerald Crest? “It’s such a home-like atmosphere, including residents, nurses and staff,” she says. “Everybody is one big family—and I love it!”

Thank you, Mary, for exceeding expectations and going the extra mile to make residents and families happy.
