Celebrating Vi’s Heart of Vi Award Winners
David Mahon, Staffing Coordinator
David has been a member of the Vi at Highlands Ranch family for over seven years. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, he has taken on a multitude of challenges with a positive, “roll up our sleeves” attitude. David worked tirelessly to identify team members who could fill in the schedule gaps due to open positions and/or COVID. He was able to obtain PRN staff members to pick up full-time hours. David also collaborated with staffing agencies to obtain extra health care workers to provide relief. Once the plastic sheeting started to go up for the Highlands Ranch COVID-19 unit, David jumped right in by contacting vendors to procure the necessary supplies and PPE for the unit, including a medication cart, suction machines and oxygen concentrators. He also maintained inventory of PPE and medical supplies. David works collaboratively across all departments and has helped maintain a sense of calm by providing reassurance and a listening ear for the residents and his colleagues.
Mike Swartz, Lead Valet
Mike joined the Vi at Highlands Ranch team in 2019. During his time as a lead valet, he has provided outstanding leadership and customer service. Mike is great ambassador of Vi’s core values. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Mike went above and beyond his day-to-day responsibilities to assist with resident car drop-off and pick-up, package delivery, mail service, delivering meals and writing/performing songs for residents. He always has a smile on his face, a cheerful attitude and a kind word for everyone. Mike has been a beacon of positivity and light during dark times. His “can-do” attitude is infectious, and one cannot help but try harder to be their best self after an encounter with Mike.
