Our October Employee of the Month is Mindi Watson. Mindi started in Wright County in 2019 as part of the child protection team. Mindi conducts child protection and Sexually Exploited Youth investigations. Mindi works hard to advocate for her clients to achieve the best outcomes for families. Mindi’s nominator states: “Mindi always goes above and beyond for her clients. She continually shows respect, care, and understanding and genuinely wants the best for both children and their parents. She has always been an outstanding co-worker, checking in with colleagues, helping at any time of day and reminding colleagues that they are doing great work. She is selfless, strong, kind, empathetic, understanding, and overall just a great and knowledgeable person to have a part of the team.”
The nominator continues, “Mindi has great boundaries, is always genuine and her personality exemplifies her professionalism and customer service as she is respectful and seeks to understand without judgement. If I could choose one person who is made for a job like child protection, it would be Mindi.” Thank you, Mindi, and congratulations on being our HHS October Employee of the Month!
