Marketing Coordinator & Graphic Designer, Christine Alston of Atco, received Samaritan Healthcare & Hospice's quarterly award for service excellence.

Samaritan created the Dove Award in 2009 to recognize employees who exemplify at least one of the organization’s five pillars of excellence - people, service, quality, finance and growth.

“She has contagious joy. You walk away [from a meeting with her] feeling supported and uplifted.  She makes you feel that you are the most important person” said Spiritual Support Chaplain Betty Warner.

She graduated from Rowan University, Glassboro, NJ, in 1998 with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication with a Public Relations Specialization. She began her career at Samaritan 6 ½ years ago as a Community Relations Assistant and grew her role as Marketing Coordinator & Graphic Designer in the following years.

“Christine brings many exceptional qualities to every department in the agency that has needed any kind of graphics or coordination support” said Public Relations Manager Carol Paprocki. “To be able to juggle multiple demands and do it in a wonderfully creative way is really a gift. Staff members are always praising her customer service, her willingness to help and the quality of her work.”
