WellLife Network Honors Staff At 2019 Annual Longevity Luncheon


"Working at WellLife Network all these years is like being part of a family. We respect each other's talents, skills and ability, as a team, to make a difference in the lives
of the people we serve." - 
Durpatee Roopnarine, Program Director


WellLife Network honored 28 loyal employees who have worked for the agency 15, 20, 25 and 30 years at its Annual Staff Longevity Luncheon, organized by the HR Department on February 22, 2018. Collectively, the staff brings more than 535 years of program and support services – ranging from residential, day habilitation to case management, pre-vocational training, infrastructure services and more.


Our Honorees are an Inspiration


Ann Marie Barbarotta, COO thanked each of the staff members for their loyalty and faithfulness to WellLife Network. “Thank you for your loyalty and years of dedicated effort to our mission," said Barbarotta. "What you each do is significant and that is the definition of success. You are an inspiration to me and the entire WellLife Network Staff.”


Honorees were given a Certificate of Appreciation, an honorarium and for those serving 30 years a beautiful crystal clock. Honorees spoke of their journey at WellLife Network and how their efforts made a steadfast impact on the lives of thousands of individuals we serve each day.


Improving Lives was Linda's Dream 


Linda Iannatto, Utilization Review Coordinator, a 20-year veteran, noted that working for WellLife Network all of these years is like working with family. “I gave up a career in business to be able to help people," stated Linda. Money did not matter to Linda, nor a bigger paycheck. She went back to school to earn a Masters in Rehabilitation and realized her dream of helping individuals in need. At WellLife Network, Linda works in the Quality Assurance Department.


Join us in congratulating the following staff who each day empower individuals to lead more independent lives. Their talents and skills strengthen our outreach to the communities we serve and demonstrate that, as an agency, we truly embrace our mission of helping individuals realize their full potential by achieving meaningful life goals.
