HATTIESBURG, MS. (WDAM) - Anna Evans loves her work and it shows. As Assistant Administrator for The Grove, a nursing home in Columbia, she wears many hats and makes sure everything is running smoothly.

"It goes from housekeeping, laundry, maintenance, nursing, dietary, just all of it, it never ends," said Evans.

Evans said she began at The Grove as a college graduate with a desire to work in healthcare. She started out in housekeeping and later became a nurses aide and moved to social work and activities. Ultimately Evans became a licensed nursing home administrator.

Throughout her career, Evans has worked with Jack Bradshaw, who is the owner and Administrator of The Grove.

"And she always puts the patients first, whatever is best for our residents, that is what she wants to do. And I may come in Monday morning and find her dressed in scrubs and she's out here working with everyone else so you just never know, she does whatever it takes to take care of the folks," said Bradshaw.

Betty Dyess is a resident of The Grove and says Evans is outgoing and kind. "I've never seen her be harsh to anyone, she's just an all around person, a good sport," said Dyess.

Anna Evans says The Grove has 80 residents and some of them just come in for therapy.
