This week, we'd like to shine the spotlight on someone that has been shining here for years! Dawn Rhodes has been working as a Direct Support Professional here for 8 years and it's about time we tell everyone about her.
Dawn is from the Tiffin area where she lives with her husband, 2 boys, and her daughter (all teenagers... Whew!) which must be a job in itself. Working in the DD field was very new to her when she started in 2006, but she jumped right in and began working with with 4 individuals that were known for exibiting very challenging behaviors. Her work was outstanding and resulted in her being promoted to Home Management Specialist where she has worked for the last 7 years while demonstrating to the company that she is certainly an employee we can put in a home to help get things started on the right foot.
Over her course of work, she gradually added the Tiffin area as her main focus and had met "Alberta." When we asked Alberta about Dawn she said I love to go shopping with Dawn to Goodwill and other places... That's our Fun Time! Though Cedar Point is their favorit place to go, Dawn says that she has honestly been everywhere and I enjoy helping our individuals become more independent.
Dawn has certainly been a very valuable employee to Wynn-Reeth and we can't thank her enough for her services. Most importantly, we know that our success comes not from administrative policies or procedures, but from the dedicate and extremely talented people such as Dawn. We have been blessed by being able to have such great people on our team and feel humbled by their choice to work here with us!
