Each month, SEEC celebrates a Direct Support Professional (DSP) who has gone above and beyond in his or her job. That person is recognized in a company-wide email and is presented with a certificate from Executive Director Karen Lee.
DSP Making A Difference for the month of March.
Marie was recognized under the “Supporting Health and Wellness” Competency.
For her incredible ability to support the medical, physical, and emotional well-being of the people she supports. Following a medical emergency for one person in particular, Marie dedicated her time to learning and participating in their physical therapy, facilitating communication between the person and her medical staff, and finding innovative ways to support her as she prepares to transition back to full community participation. Marie continuously goes out of her way to improve the well-being of the people she supports and build strong relationships with their family members. In addition, she consistently exhibits kindness, compassion and devotion in her work.
In recognition of the contributions of our Direct Support Professionals who help men and woman who receive SEEC supports to lead happy, healthy and meaningful lives, we have established the DSPs Making A Difference award. Winners will receive a gift card, certificate and will be acknowledged on plaques displayed on SEEC’s 2nd and 3rd floors, as well as our website and Facebook page!
Runner-ups will receive their nomination which includes a description of their hard work as well. Please see attached documents for further details about the DSPs Making A Difference initiative. The DSP Recognition Committee looks forward to receiving nominations for the following month!
