Health & Human Services Employee of the Month

April 2020 Employee of the Month - Amanda Anderson

Our April Employee of the Month is Amanda Anderson. Amanda is an ongoing case manager in Child Protection since August 2018. Amanda is good at advocating for her clients to get the best outcome for the families she works with. Amanda is a great team member and is always willing to help others when needed. It has been wonderful having Amanda be a part of the child protection team at Wright County. Our nominator states: Amanda is frequently the first one in and last one out the door. She is newer to her position with Wright county, but has not hesitated to hit the ground running from the very beginning. If she doesn't know how to do something, she is not afraid to ask. Not only does she receive the information, but she retains it as well. I only have to show her something once and she can do it from that point on - correctly! Amanda is one of the most positive people I know and she always puts a smile on everyone's face! By retaining information and doing tasks correctly the first time, she creates an environment that works smoothly and avoids delays to clients, foster parents, etc. Amanda is friendly, positive, and very professional. Even when a foster parent was being particularly uncooperative, Amanda continued to communicate with them in a professional manner and found ways to relieve the stress this person was causing for more than one staff. Thank you, Amanda and congratulations on being our HHS April Employee of the Month!
