In November, Hospice of Fayette County celebrated National Hospice Month and the organization also celebrated the hire of a new marketing and fundraising coordinator, Carolyn Moore.
Moore lives in Circleville and recently became engaged. She graduated from Wilmington College with a bachelor’s in business administration with a concentration in marketing in late 2013, and after graduation, worked for a golf club in Columbus marketing events. She soon expanded to weddings and other small corporate/business events. When she moved, she gained some experience in the restaurant business in Circleville while working on marketing, as well as private party room events, for a company there.
“I then came to Hospice and my first day was November 7,” Moore said. “I love it so far, it is everything I hoped it would be and more. It is exactly what I was looking for and I think that this position is going to be extremely rewarding. Now I can give back every single day at work and I know that my efforts are going toward something that is very helpful and making a difference in someone’s life.”
Moore explained that the work that she will be doing on the fundraising side of Hospice will go directly toward patient care. She also said she was glad to work in the healthcare industry, which has been a goal for her, and between these two reasons, she believes that Hospice of Fayette County is the job for her.
“I really think that this job is a perfect fit for my career goals and my personality and where I want to go,” Moore said. “Everyone I have met since I worked here has been so wonderful and welcoming. They have greeted me with open arms, so I can’t imagine how they are toward their patients and families. They are really some of the greatest people and I hope that everyone in this community, and the other counties that we serve, continue to recognize that and support a local organization trying to do the best they can.”
Moore said that after Hospice’s successful “Hearts for the Holidays” event recently, she is preparing for next year. She said she hopes to be kicking off events in January and added that she plans to expand events for the non-profit, including more ways the community can get involved to support them.
