February 2021 Employee of the Month

Phyllis OgunbuyiPhyllis Ogunbuyi

This month of February our recognized employee is Phyllis Ogunbuyi. Phyllis is a wonderful employee. She is hardworking, dedicated and always has a positive attitude. Phyllis was born in Tennessee and later moved to Santa Monica, CA when she got married. She has three children- two boys and one girl. Phyllis went to school to get her Cosmetology license and worked within the field, moving her way up to a manager position. Phyllis and her family moved to Orange County because her daughter wanted to go to Irvine University High School. While Phyllis was working in Orange County as a manager, she felt guilty because she worked a lot and wasn’t devoting enough time to her kids. She decided to be a stay-at- home mom but quickly became bored when her children were at school. She picked up some courses in child development to learn more about being a mother and raising children.

From that, Phyllis worked as a teacher’s Aid in Laguna Niguel Maria Montessori School and during the night she picked up shifts at Villa Valencia. During that time her mother and father were in Nevada. Phyllis went to Nevada to take care of her mother after her father passed on. She later brought her mother to live in Laguna Woods. She did that from 2009- 2015.

Phyllis wanted her mother to experience her great grandchildren and be able to spend her last years with them. Phyllis was being trained by Social Services to take care of her mother. During that time, she spent a lot of time learning about the different stages of aging. Her mother unfortunately transitioned in 2015. Phyllis then returned to work in 2016 to senior living.

She also worked for a homeless shelter in Santa Ana. She learned so many things regarding personalities, disabilities, illnesses, etc. At this point she had a lot of knowledge regarding senior care as well, with the experience of taking care of her mother throughout the years. May of 2020, Phyllis came to the San Clemente Villas by the Sea. Cara (LVN) and Amelia (Care Coordinator) were so welcoming.

Phyllis loves to work for the San Clemente Villas by the Sea, there’s a good energy flow.

She is very kind and loving with our staff and our residents. She tries to learn each individual to the core to provide them great service. “Sometimes they just need someone to talk to and sometimes they just need a chamomile tea.”

She says that she feels part of a community and a family. She uses the word “one-ness” to describe the sense of togetherness: “we are all individuals but we become one.” She also wants to add that she would like to thank her coworkers and acknowledge them. “You are all amazing and awesome, thank you so much for the experience that you have given me.” We are happy that her life experiences brought her to working in senior care and she is now a part of our team.


Moments to Remember

A Special Thanks!

To all our frontline staff for all the hard work and dedication!

“Angels work here’’ Keeping our residents safe!

Happy New Year from the “West Indies”
