Schnepfe takes next steps
“I have worked in LPS Nutrition services for 10 years, the last four here at Heritage. The students and the kitchen staff are what I will miss most. I have found that we have the best family here at Heritage. I feel it has been a privilege to get to know the young men and women here,” says Schnepfe.
The other kitchen employees enjoy working for Schnepfe, too. She develops a cohesive kitchen environment, focused around working with others.
“I like my job and she works well with us,” explains Flor Higa, kitchen employee.
As Kitchen Manager, she has many fond memories of the students at Heritage. Their vivacious characters are those that Schnepfe will cherish into the next step of her life.
“My favorite memories are class cheer practice before the pep assemblies and the occasional impromptu line dance or table top musical performance. I like it when teenagers are loud and spirited and do not take life too seriously,” Schnepfe elaborates.
While she will miss the wonderful memories Heritage presented her with, Schnepfe awaits her next adventure.
“I will not be retiring but rather only moving. My husband has retired and we have purchased a small hobby farm in Fruita, Colorado. We will be closer to our grandchildren and with the five acres we will have we hope to raise goats and chickens and maybe a llama. I am sad to be leaving Heritage, but excited to see what the future holds,” Schnepfe concludes.
