Anslow joins Ottawa County Health Department


Melanie Anslow has joined the nursing staff of the Ottawa County Health Department.
Anslow, a Catawba Island resident, has been in the nursing profession 38 years.
She works in the home health care division on a part-time basis, visiting patients in the privacy of their homes. She began her employment there in mid-April.
“What’s not to like,” she said about the profession. “In my mind, I have always been a nurse for as long as I can remember.”
 “Home health care is a great opportunity to see your patients in their own setting. You get to know their kids, their family.” Anslow said.
Anslow came on board with a wealth of experience, said Diane Kokinda, the department’s director of nursing.
Her hiring brings the nursing staff to four full-time employees and four part-time employees, Kokinda added.
Anslow has a husband and three adult children, a son and daughter who live locally and a daughter who lives in Columbus.
