 It is with honor and the greatest appreciation to recognize Emily Wooliver, RC as staff member of the month.  Recently Emily was instrumental in saving a consumer’s life.  Emily's expertise and advocacy for this consumer resulted in a urgent admission.  Throughout this consumer's hospitalization, Emily remained in communication with the hospital staff, family, and the consumer on a daily basis.  Her approach was to promote quality of care for the consumer.  The consumer informed Mary King, RM and Robert Roth, AED that "If it wasn't for Emily, I would not be here today" and further commented that "I owe my life to Emily."  Outside of this urgent event, Emily demonstrates her very dedication and professionalism as a counselor and co-worker.  Emily plans and organizes her work responsibilities as a Rehabilitation Counselor without hesitation and currently is working between the supervised residence and the apartment programs. Emily's understanding and commitment to this field is outstanding and evident in her work and communications on a daily basis.  Congratulations to Emily and thank you for all that you do and all that you bring to the agency and the consumers.
