Our November Employee of the Month Jana Hogenson. Jana started her work at Wright County in February 2020 conducting child protection investigations. In February this year, Jana moved to the Rapid Response position and has collaborated with several workers to create safety, strengthen families, and build stronger communities. Jana brings vast knowledge of community programs and resources along with a genuine drive to help families succeed. Jana’s nominator states, “Jana has been a part of the Intake & Intervention team since March of 2022 working as our Rapid Response Facilitator. She has really embraced her new role on the I&I team and has been such a great addition. She has been enthusiastic about learning the duties of both child protection intake and general intake in addition to her own job duties to assist with coverage when needed. Jana is always willing to help others on the team and does it with a smile and lots of humor!” “Jana is always respectful when speaking with clients and their support people when setting up rapid response meetings. She is willing to take the time to explain the process and work through any questions or concerns they have. She works hard to make families comfortable with the process and so they are more willing to engage in the process.” Thank you, Jana, and congratulations on being our HHS November Employee of the Month!
