A Mother and Daughter's Journey
Kris Krajewski: Hi, I am Kris Krajewski. I am the director of PT, OT and Speech Therapy Services at MetroEHS. I am a clinical fellow mentor, a speech language pathologist, and a mom. And this is my daughter McKenna. McKenna is a therapy assistant at our Rochester Hills location.
Mckenna Krajewski: So as therapy assistant, they clean, do desk work and sanitize, take temperatures, taking care of clients, make sure they're safe and healthy, help them with their work and special needs. It makes me feel amazing and happy to be there for them. I am very, very proud.
Kris Krajewski: I got teary listening to McKenna talk about it because what, what is most important to me for children or anybody of any age, but in particular my child, is that they are happy. A large part of that happiness comes from feeling connected and having a purpose, um, and knowing that you have somewhere to go where you're valued and you're important. And so I see that happening at Metro with McKenna, with her job as a professional. I'm really proud of MetroEHS for thinking about people at, you know, both ends of that age spectrum, right? We have our little littles coming in at a very young age, and we are still interested in what happens to our kiddos when they get out into the world of work. Um, and to me that's a really important message.
