Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice names vol­un­teer of the month

Record Observer - - Senior Satellite -

CEN­TRE­VILLE — Ju­lia D’Am­bro­sio, of Cen­tre­ville, is a fa­mil­iar face around Camp New Dawn and the ad­min­is­tra­tive of­fices of Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice. She was named as the most re­cent hos­pice vol­un­teer of the month.

“She was nom­i­nated for ex­em­pli­fy­ing the core val­ues we look for in a vol­un­teer, treat­ing every job with pro­fes­sion­al­ism, en­ergy and a spirit of open-mind­ed­ness,” said Court­ney Wil­liams, man­ager of vol­un­teer and pro­fes­sional ser­vices.

D’Am­bro­sio is known for tak­ing on de­tailed and even down and dirty tasks to help the or­ga­ni­za­tion pre­pare for pro­grams and events. A re­cent grad­u­ate of Queen Anne’s County High School, she also ad­vo­cated for CRH through phi­lan­thropy at the school.“I re­ally en­joy help­ing the staff at Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice in any way I can be­cause I know that the lit­tle things I do al­lows them to spend more time tak­ing care of the pa­tients at hos­pice and their fam­i­lies,” D’Am­bro­sio said.

“My grand­mother al­ways stressed to me how im­por­tant it was to serve oth­ers, and she was very in­volved in the hos­pice where she lived. Af­ter she passed away, I knew that hos­pice was the or­ga­ni­za­tion I wanted to give back to, and it has been so re­ward­ing.”

Com­pass Re­gional Hos­pice re­lies on more than 300 vol­un­teers of all ages. For in­for­ma­tion about be­com­ing a vol­un­teer visit www.com­pass­re­gion­al­hos­pice.org/ vol­un­teers or con­tact Court­ney Wil­liams, 443-262-4112, cwilliams@com­pass­re­gion al­hos­pice.org.
