Roberta Whitney

Office Manager

Who is Your Favourite Musician:
I don’t really have one favourite musician. Even though I can’t “carry a tune in a bucket” as my mom used to say, I love all types of music. Up beat tunes always make me happy and want to dance.

Best Gift You Have Ever Received:
The best gift that I have ever received are my children and my grandchildren. I am very blessed with a wonderful family.

If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to and why:

Who is Your Favourite Musician:
I enjoy several types of music, but if I had to choose one musician, I think I’d pick Ed Sheeran. He’s extremely talented and successful, yet remains humble, kind, and grounded. And on top of all that, he’s adorable.

Best Gift You Have Ever Received:
One of the best gifts I ever received was a coffee mug from my kids. It was the first Summer I’d left them home alone while I worked. They spent days working together on the computer, designing it with their favourite photos. Whenever I use the mug, I’m reminded how lucky I am to be their mom.

If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to and why:
If I could go back in time, I’d like to live life without cell phones. When you met people face to face, remembered phone numbers, sent handwritten letters, when kids went outside from sun up to sun down playing games like jump rope, hopscotch, and hide and seek. When family time was board games and dinner time had no electronic distractions. I guess I just miss the simpler way of life.

Life. It has given me the knowledge to help others, and most of all it has given me wonderful children and grand-children.

If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to and why:
I would go back to Klondike Days – 1800’s. There wasn’t the hassle and bustle of everything – it was laid back and in order to cope you relied on your neighbours for help and endurance.

What has your time at MLP Residence taught you:
It has taught me patience and understanding of not only the residents but also other team members and how to cope with everyone’s needs.

Who is Your Favourite Musician:
Music has always been a very large part of my life. It is so hard for me to just choose one musician. If I had to choose one artist alone, it would have to be Martina McBride, her lyrics and voice have been very inspiring to me.

Best Gift You Have Ever Received:
The best gift I have ever received would have to be my children. They have shown me the true meaning of love, and make me proud to be their Mama every day.

If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to and why:
If I could go back to any year, it would be 2006, that is the year I met my husband and our life began.

My time here at MLP has been short thus far, but I can honestly say that I love coming to work and being able to spend time and care for the residents who live here. I have learned so much from all of the amazing people and staff.

Even though I am new at MLP I have already learnt a lot of things, mainly the experiences of our seniors whom I am lucky to have an opportunity to serve. I am sure in the years ahead I will learn a lot more and look forward to gaining the knowledge.

If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to and why:
If I could go back in time, I would go back to the Victorian Era. I’ve always been attracted to the architectural designs of that time. Life seemed simpler than now. To me, life seemed to go a little slower, so you were able to have the time to enjoy the small things; like smelling the roses.

Have to say this past Christmas – I received a 3D picture of a wolf head. Also having all of my family here is the best gift of all …

If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to and why:
It would be when my other was growing up in the 1940’s. When rent was only $27 a month, you could buy a house for $3,000 and bread was only 10 cents a loaf.

What has your time at MLP Residence taught you:
My time at MLP has taught me to have more respect for seniors. We are all going to be there one day as well. Listen to what they have to say and appreciate that they have their own opinions … extend towards them a helping hand when needed

From the first time that I walked in to MLP Residence and took a tour of the place, I was impressed with what I saw. I am fairly new to the MLP Team but am excited for the things to come.
