Anjou Bice Earns Prestigious Award at Woman of the Year banquet
The American Association of University Women is a non-profit organization that advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, and research. The AAUW held their 35th annual Woman of the Year banquet in April and recognized one of Memorial’s team members for outstanding service in the healthcare field. Anjou Bice has worked as an outpatient physical therapist serving at Memorial Hospital for 20 years of her 22-year career.
Anjou immigrated to America from Jamaica as a child, and enlisted in the Army Reserves in 1984. She transferred to the Air Force in 1986, where she served as a dental hygienist, and was then deployed during Desert Storm. While in the military, she obtained her undergraduate hours prior to being accepted to and graduating from UTMB El Paso campus with a Masters in Physical Therapy.
Her Nacogdoches community activities include assisting in coaching girls’ recreational volleyball, playing women’s recreational volleyball and serving at First Baptist Church in Nacogdoches for six years, teaching preschool missions.
She is the mother of two daughters - Asiya, 13, and Andraissah, 9. Anjou holds BIG certification for Parkinson’s disease and Yoga Fit levels 1 and 2. She has been the recipient of several Wow Moments, but simply believes “this is just what we do.”
