HR director finding lots to love about new role
In the short time that Lisa Shelton has taken on the role of Human Resources Director for Lawrence Presbyterian Manor, she’s seen the love and dedication of the PMMA mission lived out in real life.
“I’m amazed at how the staff, from LPM up to the home office, supports each other,” Lisa said. “Everyone is friendly and always willing to help. I really value working with a team like this, and feel fortunate to have landed here.”
Lisa stepped into the role of HR director in early December, and has already found the work to be fulfilling and rewarding.
“I’m responsible for recruiting and setting up interviews. I schedule orientations with new hires and assist and provide guidance to supervisors and directors with employee relations. I also assist with worker’s compensation and FMLA,” Lisa said about her duties.
But there’s more to the job, and that’s what she enjoys the most.
“I love interacting with residents and staff,” she said. “I also enjoy that no two days are the same.”
When Lisa isn’t enjoying her time at LPM, she’s often found spending time with family or engaging in one of her hobbies and past times.
“I’ve been married for 16 years to my husband Larry,” Lisa said. “I have two sons, one daughter, and a grandson who is seven. We have two dogs, two cats, so it’s always controlled chaos in the house! In my free time, I enjoy going to concerts, bird watching when the weather is nice, and taking nature pictures. I’m a KU fan, and was lucky enough to attend most of the home football games of the 2022 season.”
Be sure to give a warm welcome to Lisa and welcome her to the LPM family.
