Housekeeping Coordinator, Mirzeta Kazic, is recognized among fellow staff, residents, and guests for saying “how can we help”. Mirzeta began her career at Rotary Villas in May 2017 as a Housekeeper and has moved up to take on more responsibility and leadership. At a young age, she moved from Bosnia to the Canadian prairies with her family.
She is dedicated and attributes her ethics from her lifetime of experience working locally with her family in construction. Mirzeta chose to apply at Rotary Villas because she enjoys the challenge of keeping up with the cleanliness, safety and sanitation for all who live, visit, and work in the facility. As a leader, she has transformed all the housekeeping work spaces to be more organized and functional for her team. As a mother of two, she is well practiced at multi-tasking and solving problems quickly.
In her time off, Mirzeta enjoys spending quality time with her children, family, and friends; BBQs; gardening on the farm; hiking with her kids; and playing billiards with friends.
