2023 Supernova Winner

Evergreen Woods’ Nina O’Rourke Wins 2023 Supernova Award

HR Director Takes Home Highest Honor

The Supernova Award is our company’s highest individual honor each year. The individual on the leadership team receives votes from their colleagues as the community’s Supernova based on various criteria.

The criteria that the Executive Team bases the nomination on upholding our company’s mission to be caring professionals dedicated to quality services lead positively with integrity, take accountability, put the team before themselves, and embody the company’s vision to create communities where people live longer, healthier, and happier lives. The team member who stands out from the rest receives its prestigious Supernova Award from our Executive Team at the Senior Living Communities Annual Meeting Purple Gala Awards Ceremony!

This year, we are proud to congratulate our Human Resource Director, Nina O’Rourke, as the recipient of the 2023 Evergreen Woods Supernova Award. Nina is the heartbeat of the community.

That commitment to serve matches her own and makes her proud to work here. Nina feels that she has found her niche and is very grateful to have been given this opportunity.
