Today marks the start of Direct Support Professional (DSP) Appreciation Week. From September 13th through the 19th we are thanking our dedicated and essential DSPs. Throughout the week, we will be sharing “shout outs” and thank you messages from members of the Springbrook community! Make sure you take a moment this week (or anytime!) to tell DSPs just know how much you appreciated them.
Our first shout out comes from Tara Huwa, Residential Manager at the Pierstown Community Home
I’d like to thank all the DSPs here at Springbrook! I appreciate all of you for everything you do. I would like to give a personal shout out to Megan Lincoln for always having an energetic vibe when coming into work—it rubs off on everyone. I would also like to thank her for being extremely flexible with her schedule to fill in where needed. And, of course, also for the support she provides to the people that live at Pierstown. I’d like to give another shout out to Cynthia Fessel for her willingness to cover shifts (even on a moment’s notice or standby) where needed, even if it is on a day she does not work. She even does it with a smile on her face! Cynthia, your hard work doesn’t go unnoticed. Thank you, Megan and Cynthia!
