Vanessa Salcedo wants to be as helpful as possible as people walk through the front doors of Promise Community Health Center in Sioux Center.
As a new receptionist for Promise, she is one of the first persons who patients see.
“I hope to be another helpful smile as patients walk in the door and make them feel welcome,” she said.
Vanessa, who is bilingual in English and Spanish, grew up in Orange City and attended MOC-Floyd Valley School District through the 10th grade. She graduated from Penn Foster Online High School in 2016.
She worked at Mi Lupita Bar & Grill in Sioux Center for four and a half years before assuming her role at Promise. She was interested in learning a new position and doing something different than her past job experiences, particularly a job that involves computers.
“I felt like I could do a good job in this position,” she said.
Vanessa also appreciates working for an organization such as Promise.
“Promise does a good job of taking care of anybody coming in for an appointment,” she said. “They help with any questions and concerns you may have. And my family also appreciates the care Promise brings to them.”
