Mrs. Elaine Palmer

 I began my employment at WKES in November, 2012, as the part-time Health Room Assistant. In August 2015, I also became a part-time secretary assistant in the front office, hence a happy full-time employee at WKES for the past five years.

     I am a long time Columbia area resident and have lived/worked in our great state for the past 50 years. I have been happily married for the past 28 of those years. My husband and I have two wonderful kids; a son and a daughter; both White Knoll area school alumni.

The highlight of my professional career was my graduation from MTC in 1992, earning a certificate as a Licensed Practical Nurse. My 6 years of practice were mainly in geriatrics with a focus on the dementia specific population. 

     In 1998, I had my first child and chose to "work" as a stay-at-home Mom. Our second child in 2001, a cousin and a niece kept me busy "working at home" for the next 14 years, which I loved!

     Being employed at WKES for the past 8 years has been very fulfilling in both capacities. My health room position took me back to the classroom in 2018 where I earned my Certified Nursing Assistant certificate. 

     Alongside a great team, it's a pleasure and privilege to serve the White Knoll community as "We Lead, We Learn and We Love."
