In 1998, when Anne McGuckin began working at Paul’s Run Retirement Community, she was looking for looking for a part time job to keep her busy after working for 28 years. Anne liked the organization and since there weren’t any open part time positions she accepted a fulltime position, and planned to work for about six months. Now after 13 and a half years Anne is going to retire – again.
Since 2001, Anne has been a human resources representative for Liberty Lutheran based at Paul’s Run, and reports that her colleagues are the reason for her to stay twelve and a half years longer than she expected. “The employees are great, and Liberty Lutheran really appreciates us,” she said. “I have really enjoyed working here.” Anne especially enjoyed working in human resources because she was able to develop relationships with her colleagues. “I really like the interaction with the employees.”
Anne is looking forward to spending more time with her husband and friends. She has a sister who lives in Madrid, Spain, and is excited to visit her more often. She also likes to swim, and plans on spending more time at the pool.
