Welcome Toni Pommier, Director of Nutritional Services!
We introduce to you our new Director of Nutritional Services – Toni Pommier!
Toni comes to us with a lot of experience! She has been a Certified Dietary Manager (CDM) for over 35 years – she received her certification at the University of North Dakota. Prior to that she obtained her Associates Degree from Penn State. She is a current member (and past state officer) of the Association of Nutrition and Foodservice Professionals. Through that program she was named Certified Dietary Manager of the year in 2018!
Toni worked for 32 years at Medicalodge as a traveling dietary coordinator. And she did a LOT of traveling – over 1.5 million miles within the 4 states of Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma during her tenure there!
She is happy to be close to home now so she can see her family more. Toni and her husband, Randy, have been married almost 48 years and live in Girard. They had all boys and 3 of the 4 were born at GMC as well as her grandson! Toni is glad she lives close to her grandson – partially because of his 5 month old daughter she now gets to spoil. “I have the most beautiful great granddaughter you have ever seen,” she said. “And I just bought her 15 new outfits and 2 new toys this weekend!”
Toni already feels very comfortable in her new position. “Unlike most hospitals, Girard Medical Center is not overwhelming at all,” she said. “I love my staff and everyone is so friendly.” Toni has just been here for 2 months but she said coming to work here was like coming home.
Welcome to our GMC family, Toni! We are glad you are here! #OurGMCTeam
