Health & Human Services Employee of the Month

November 2016 Employee of the Month - Kathleen Lamberts

Congratulations to our November HHS Employee of the Month Kathleen Lamberts. Kathleen was nominated by her coworkers who stated that “No matter how busy Kathleen is with providing excellent services for her own clients or with her adult protection cases, she is always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone who asks. She is knowledgeable, professional, and a fantastic resource. Many workers from her unit, as well as workers from other units, seek her out for assistance with MMIS, SSIS, and MnCHOICES, as well as to consult with her about troublesome cases due to not only her knowledge but also her fair but firm demeanor.”  

Kathleen is celebrating her 10th anniversary with WCHHS this month. She began her career here providing  Family Assessment services to families needing CP services.  She was in this role for three years before taking over the Child Protection Intake position.  In 2013 she brought her skills and talents to the Adult Services Team.  She currently serves aging persons and those with disabilities in the unique role as a Waiver Social Worker who also investigates Adult Protection reports.  The services and supports she coordinates provide the needed resources persons need to continue living in their homes in and around Wright County.  Thank you Kathleen for your exceptional service, your patience and your willingness to help others out.
