Michelle Reeves was looking for a way to supplement her income.
Both found what they were looking for at the Next Gen Senior Center in Quarryville where they took over from former directors Vicki Henry and Terry Ludwig, both of whom have retired.
The center's clients have made the transition nearly seamless.
"They know who's supposed to be the kitchen captain each day and make sure it's cleaned up after lunch. That's a tremendous help," Reeves added.
Reeves and Bryant are now working with the center's clients to add new activities.
"We're seeing what they want and getting ideas from them," Bryant said.
The center's clients enjoy exercise classes "and we're looking to bring Zumba back," Bryant said.
"They would also like more music," Reeves said. The two are now looking for free or low-cost activities that will meet the clients' wishes.
"We also have to keep to a guideline that directs us to have so many nutritional programs and other programs," Reeves said.
They hope additional activities will bring more seniors to the center.
"We have 16 to 20 people here every day and, as the weather warms up, we will have more," Bryant said.
"We have had four or five more come in for the tax preparation assistance who have said they would like to join," Reeves said.
Bryant came to the senior center after working for a veterinarian in Oxford.
"I wanted to switch jobs and my mom told me about this," Bryant said. "I was looking for a different job. It's a lot different than what I had. But my mom works in nursing homes and I grew up helping her out."
Reeves has always worked around seniors and people with disabilities.
"This is right up my alley," she said. "I have been around the elderly and this is what I expected it to be."
When she's not working, Bryant likes to go on walks, spend time with her family, and go fishing.
Reeves enjoys camping, but, she said, only in the summer months.
