Social worker grateful to serve

Good Samaritan Society - Woodland social worker, Tabatha Anderson, is grateful to serve senior adults and their families.

When Tabatha Anderson went to college, she never dreamed it would be for social work. What started as a passion for teaching quickly turned into a passion for serving older adults.

During her last year of college at Minnesota State University Moorhead, a summer internship became available at a long-term care center in Fargo, North Dakota.

“I don’t know if it even took a full week for me to fall in love with the people and how special of an environment it was,” says Tabatha.

After graduating, she spent time working at a long-term care center in the Twin Cities, but she and her future husband wanted to live somewhere closer to family.

A new beginning

That’s when Tabatha discovered the Good Samaritan Society. She was first hired in Pine River, Minnesota, and then, two years later, she transitioned to Good Samaritan Society – Woodland in Brainerd, Minnesota. She served as a social worker there for the next eight years.
