50th Anniversary Employee Spotlight - Roni Erath
Merakey is turning 50 years old this year! We have a lot to celebrate this year including our incredible workforce! A number of employees have been with Merakey for many of those years, and they deserve a spotlight for all their hard work and dedication! Look for more employee spotlights in The Pulse, on digital signage, and on Facebook!
Assistant Regional Executive Director for Merakey Allegheny Valley School Western Region, Roni Erath, has worked with Merakey for 34 years! According to Roni, Merakey gives her the opportunity and a method to impact future leaders in the health field. She derives a great deal of personal satisfaction mentoring and guiding others who will carry the company quality standards through the next 50 years!
Her favorite memory while working at Merakey is having the privilege of opening the Brick House, a new home on the Pittsburgh campus. She helped with the design and furnishings. Being able to watch the indronieaividuals thrive in that environment was a very proud moment for Roni.
The core value that means the most to Roni is integrity. Knowing that what she does everyday is the right thing to do, even if it is difficult, is an important part of her work.
“I came to Merakey Allegheny Valley School for a part time job while in school and I never left! The mission, my coworkers, and the individuals we serve got in my blood! I can’t imagine working anywhere else.”
Congratulations, Roni, and thank you for 34 years of putting your heart and soul into exceptional care and services!
