Employee Spotlight - Romnita Watkins
What is your favorite thing about work?
Making a difference in the lives of the people we serve. What may seem so small to us is big to them. I work with someone that loves balloons and when you give her one you would think you just gave her a million dollars. It that warms my heart to see these special moments.
How do I spend my time outside of work:
I am a mother of eight kids. Six have graduated high school and attended college. Two graduated college and one dropped out and started his own business. Three are still in college trying to figure it all out. I have eight year old twins at home and a four year old granddaughter. The other day she said, “Grandma are you a kid? Well you’re talking during my show.” This made me laugh inside. My time outside of work is full of love, laughter and happiness.
What is something employees may not know about you:
I am a writer of novels that have not been published. I write songs and I love to act. I was in a lot of plays growing up. I am also the youngest of seven children and I have the most kids of the family.
