Jennifer Catalano, of North Syracuse, was recently named Loretto Health and Rehabilitation Center's March Employee of the Month. Catalano is a social worker on the third floor of Loretto Health and Rehabilitation Center's Fahey Rehab in Syracuse. A Loretto employee for more than six years, she was chosen because of the "integrity and professionalism she brings to the job."
Prior to Loretto, Catalano worked with abused children, the developmentally disabled and as an educator trainer. She said she has always enjoyed working with the elderly, which attracted her to Loretto. At Loretto's Fahey Rehab, she enjoys helping elders and other patients "get back home." Catalano enjoys the day-to-day challenges of rehabilitation, and her co-workers describe her as "a pleasure to deal with and team player who works collaboratively with her unit."
In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Joe, the outdoors and taking Zumba classes.
