Cheri Manthei serves as the facilities office manager at Cedar Community—a job she applied for in 2021. However, her career at Cedar Community actually spans 26 years, starting when she was a junior at Campbellsport High School. She was hired into the nursing assistant training program. Upon completion of the course, she took the certification exam to become a certified nursing assistant (CNA) and worked nights and weekends during school. After graduation, Cheri worked as a CNA on the a.m. shift until a position became available in financial services working with accounts receivables.

In 2001, Cheri wanted to return to a role with the nursing team where she started, so she transitioned to nurse scheduling. She spent 11 years as a scheduler before human resources offered her a position as a recruiter, a position she held until 2021.

Cheri’s teammates appreciate the many roles she has played at Cedar Community, “Cheri’s role goes beyond facilities office manager. She is available to the human resources department whenever questions need answering.” “She always has a great attitude and is willing to help out in any area.” “She truly is a team player.” “We are lucky to have Cheri as part of our family.”

Cheri Manthei serves as the facilities office manager at Cedar CommunityCheri also appreciates the team members she has met over the years, “Going to work is like seeing your extended family,” she says. “You can walk down the hallway and you know just about everyone here.”

“Cheri has been a great addition to the facilities services department, managing the workflow, keeping the department organized and efficient, and providing outstanding customer service to our team and vendors,” says Todd Miller, vice president of facilities management.
