Some of NET's outstanding staff were recognized with Performance Improvement Awards at the December Board of Directors Meeting.
Tim Deal has been a tremendous asset to our IT deparment since he was hired over a year ago. Tim was particularly instrumental at preparing NET's new facility on State Road for staff and clients last year, putting in extra early morning and after-hour time. He also headed up the agency's transition to Office 365 email and the Microsoft Office 365 Share Point project.
Alexsandra Holvachoff is an Outpatient Counselor with NET Steps where she's worked for almost three years. When NET Steps opened a second site on State Road, Alex volunteered to move to the new location to help get the program off the ground. Her initiative, dedication and flexibility are much appreciated!
Edward McCleery of Adult Services works directly with Logisticare who reimburses NET for Client Transportation. Since Eddie started working with Logisticare, NET has been getting paid four times as much prior to him taking over the project. They have even started sending NET back pay that was owed from 2014/2015. This is all due to the Excel Tracking Sheet that Eddie created and Logisticare agreed to implement.
Jennifer Jung has continually shown a commitment to excellence during her 13 year
tenure at NET. She is the Care Management Supervisor for the Youth Behavioral Health division and oversees a staff of 7 care managers. Jen ensures that all the authorizations from CBH are obtained in a timely and accurate manner for youth services in order to reduce any lost revenue. Over the past year, she has dedicated her efforts to improving systems in Credible to increase efficiency and reduce waste.
Solienne Hale, a Case Manager for CUA 7, was not in attendance; however, Christopher Waiters, Case Manager Director, shared that Solienne was one of the first staff hired at CUA 7 and as a result, had one of the first permanency placement cases. Her commitment to her work and to the CUA families is invaluable.
Thank you and congratulations to all of the award winners!
