Social worker grateful to serve
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.
