Masonic Village has provided me with invaluable experience and has helped shape me into the professional I am today. From volunteering as a teenager to holding my first job as a server to gaining critical involvement as a public relations intern to becoming a public relations professional, Masonic Village has been with me every step of the way. I look forward to continuing to learn and grow my skills here, and I’m happy to be doing PR work for an organization with such a strong and caring mission.

Supervisor of Music Therapy

With support from the Masonic Village I was able to start a new Music Therapy Program in 1999. The program now includes five board-certified music therapists and has trained hundreds of interested students. There has not been a day where I haven’t positively connected with residents, family members, staff and volunteers through my position here. This career is what I have dreamed of since studying in college over 40 years ago, and I am grateful for this organization’s continuous support.

Since I was young, I dreamed of having a career where I could incorporate my passion of the culinary arts. Masonic Village has given me opportunities to express my creativity, be an active member of professional organizations, incorporate new programs and has even allowed me to expand my career by transferring from one location to another. Each day I look forward to continuing my life’s passion and serving residents who give me that extra reason to succeed.

Everyone at Masonic Village makes up a close knit family. My co-workers and I spend eight hours a day together and have been buried under meal tickets and time crunches together. We always help each other out, and everyone here makes coming to work an enjoyable experience.

I enjoy knowing that each day I have helped at least one resident live a little more comfortably by finding their strengths and improving their work areas. It makes it a lot easier to come to work when you know you’re doing something good. Masonic Village does not treat you like a mass employee, but as an individual, and that’s invaluable.

Masonic Village provided me with encouragement and support to advance my career goal. My decision to go back to school was highly influenced by many of my co-workers. Masonic Village also provided tuition reimbursement and flexibility in my work schedule, which made it easier for me to succeed.

rich johnson
Creative Director

Rich Johnson

Prior to working at Masonic Village, I did freelance and agency work, where nearly every project I took on was based solely on commerce. My work for the Masonic Villages over the last nine years has been more about people, great causes and supporting a caring mission. It’s extremely important to feel that your work is worthwhile, purposeful and changes people’s lives for the better. I have that here.
