JoAnn Curry is many things to many different people. To her three grandchildren, this vibrant grandma is “Meemah”. Her friends know JoAnn as a HUGE Pittsburgh Steelers fanatic. Fellow colleagues and residents at Toms River’s Holiday Care Center, know her as “kind”, “loving” and “devoted”. Now, friends, family, and the entire Garden State can call JoAnn Curry by her well-deserved title, NJADONA (New Jersey Association Directors of Nursing Administration) LPN of the Year.
Donna Schwartzman CSW, LNHA, Administrator at Holiday Care Center, has been one of JoAnn’s most vociferous boosters. “JoAnn is a strong leader who is slight in stature, which is no match for the enormous ownership or energy that she demonstrates when caring for the residents and managing the staff. She understands the balance required of being kind and gentle, while being in a position of authority to get the best outcomes for residents and staff.”Read more: Holiday Care Center’s JoAnn Curry chosen New Jersey LPN of the Year.
