“Lisa is always willing to change her schedule to accommodate the house’s needs. She goes above and beyond and always has a positive attitude about the job,” Devuyst adds.
“She knows her job and never needs to be reminded of what she has to do,” Rivenberg says. “Lisa comes to work and is always willing to come in early if we need her.”
“Lisa is a great advocate for the people we support. She is always positive and makes sure she gives guidance, showing she loves and cares for them. She takes the time to shop and makes sure they are dressed and cared for. She is a team player and puts the individuals and coworkers first. Lisa is an asset to our community,” they both concluded.
