Oakland’s Own Lisa Ensley
“Oakland’s Own” is a series highlighting the exceptional members of our staff and showing our appreciation for all of their dedicated work. Please take a moment to read about this week’s spotlighted staff member: Lisa Ensley.
Lisa Ensley is our beloved Business Office Manager at Oakland Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center. She is responsible for overseeing resident funds, assisting families with insurance and Medicaid applications, and so much more! Lisa started in our business office on January 3rd, 1989 and says about her job, “I feel that every day I come to work I come into the home of our residents. I always try to treat our center as their home versus my office”. Lisa’s favorite part of her job is “getting to meet so many lovely residents and their families”.
A Quick Q&A with Lisa – How did you first learn about Oakland? My great grandmother was a resident here – she lived until she was 106! In fact, many of my family members and friends’ families have been patients here. What 3 words best describe Oakland? Commitment, consistent, and caring. We are committed to providing consistent top notch care to our residents! What is one thing your coworkers don’t know about you?: I’ve played the piano since I was a child. What do you like most about working for Marquis Health Services?: The support that the staff is given from our corporate office. How do you balance your career and family?: I have a very supportive husband, Pete, and we call ourselves “Team Ensley” because that’s how we approach life on a daily basis – as a team!
When Lisa’s not at work she likes to spend time with family and friends – especially going to dinner and listening to live music.
