Christina Jones- Dr. Seuss said, "To the world you may be one person, but to one person, you may be the world." Christina Jones means the world to the residents at Morgantown Care and Rehabilitation Center, where she has been an exceptional stakeholder since 2009.  Christina was born in Ohio County, Kentucky, on August 19, 1991.

Her parents are Bonita and James.  They raised Christina, her brother, Tyler, and her sister, Deborah, in Morgantown, Kentucky, where she attended school.  She cherishes her school days and was a very good student.  In 2010, Christina married her best friend, Brandon.  They are still happily married, and Christina is close to her amazing in-laws, Phyllis and Alvin, as well as her brother-in-law, Brad and his partner Chris.  She also has two nephews, Johnny and Alex.  Her family is the most important part of Mrs. Jones’ life—in addition to her career as a Certified Medical Assistant.  During Mrs. Jones’ senior year of high school, she completed her CNA license.  Her mother was a nurse at Morgantown Care and Rehab in her hometown of Morgantown.  This allowed Christina to grow up knowing the facility, as well as developing a sentiment to be able to serve a purpose by helping others.  She will never forget her first two weeks.  She was 17 years old when a huge ice storm hit the town.  She slept on the conference room floor with her family, then worked throughout the day.  She always jokes about getting broke into her role really fast.  Jones states, “In the last ten and a half years my role at Morgantown Care and Rehab never gets old.  It brings me much joy to see my elders’ smiling faces.  Those faces prevent me from ever having a bad day.”  Last year, Morgantown Care and Rehab assisted Mrs. Jones in completing her Certified Medical Assistant license.  Jones has also played a big role in the Pinnacle Program, ICARE Committee, the Walk for Alzheimer’s Committee and she continues to support and nurture the loving community at Morgantown Care and Rehab to this day.  Mrs. Jones has several hobbies and interests.  When not working at Morgantown Care and Rehab as a CMA, she enjoys quilting, baking, and fishing.  She also volunteers at the Morgantown Mission and is a part of the Aunt Jane’s Homemakers, a group that assists her beloved city of Morgantown.  Her favorite holiday is Christmas because she can share this holiday with the elders at Morgantown Care and Rehab, which she finds more than rewarding.  She loves getting to see the elders’ faces when they see the lights.  Mrs. Jones would hope that people would say that she is kind to everybody. In the words of Mark Twain, “Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and blind can see.”
