Here are the Highlights from Marievette’s nomination:
Demonstrating The Arc NCR’s Mission
Marievette is a loyal and dedicated Direct Support Professional. She is consistently going above and beyond what is expected of her, and champions the people supported in the Personal Supports program. She works in Cecil County, an area that is too far for many of our team members to be able to work. In light of this staffing deficit, Marievette never fails to rise to the occasion. She works well beyond the hours required of her and maintains exceptional flexibility with her schedule. It is her hard work and dedication that makes effective staffing possible for the individuals she supports. She is simply an indispensable member of the Personal Supports team, not only for her exceptional presence, but the quality of support she provides and the strong relationships she has developed with the individuals she supports and their families.
Enhancing Community Participation for Supported Individuals
Marievette is always looking for new ways to engage in the community. Though this has been more of a challenge since COVID-19 began, she is not often comfortable being stationary. She is always assisting the individuals she supports to engage in the community in meaningful ways, whether it be advocating for them in day programs, activities, or other events. She is also willing and able to flex her schedule around making some of these things happen, even when they occur outside of her normal work hours. She understands the importance of community engagement for the people we support!
