St. Luke's Employee Burgundy Zellmer Lives up to her 'Colorful' Name

by -


Burgundy Zellmer not only has a colorful name, she also has a bright smile and radiant attitude to match. As a hostess for the UnityPoint Health - St. Luke’s Food and Nutrition team, she spends her days delivering food to patients. However, she isn’t just loved by patients; her fellow co-workers recently came together to nominate her for St. Luke’s Employee of the Month for November.

Those co-workers, along with other members of the St. Luke’s family, gathered to recognize Zellmer in a surprise ceremony. Zellmer reacted in her signature style – with an ear to ear smile.

“It’s hard not to be happy when you get to work with such great people every day,” says Zellmer.

Food and Nutrition Manager, Christy Nikkel, says Zellmer truly is one-of-a- kind.

“She is loved by all. She is someone of great integrity and is an absolute joy to work with,” says Nikkel.

Other team members describe Zellmer as helpful, respectful, sweet, caring, honest and reliable.

As the St. Luke’s Employee of the Month for November, Zellmer received a special watch from Greenberg’s Jewelers, her own premium parking space, gift cards to the St. Luke’s Glass Apple Gift Shop, The Parkview Café and a gift certificate to be used at an area restaurant. She will also have the chance to be voted as St. Luke’s Employee of the Year for 2016. That comes with a paid vacation.
