Communication – Your communication skills help build positive relationships. Your communication has helped close gaps between DSPs and supervisors and made it possible to get things done that were needed. Your positive energy and kind soul has been a breath of fresh air and the individuals have responded well to it. It’s great having you on our team!

Solution Focus – Solution Focus! Worked to find shift coverage, after finding she couldn’t cover it for me. She went out of her way to make sure everything was covered, without even telling me there was an issue.


Thank you all for the effort you’re making to live out SSVA’s core values!
