Sharon Metzler is named staff member of the month.  She is employed as an RC at the Olean Treatment Apartments. Sharon works in a professional manner with her clients and goes above and beyond her job description. Sharon is extremely caring and compassionate with the residents.  The residents trust Sharon and know that she will assist them with their needs. She often will visit people twice a day if the need arises. Sharon has responded quickly with crisis situations in the past year at the OTAP.  She shows empathy and compassion with our residents who are suffering from suicidal thoughts or their symptomology. Sharon is very dependable, responsible, and  incredibly organized.  She does a fine job in completing reimbursable services and meeting UCR requirements.  She shows excellent initiative for handling the small tasks that come up daily in the treatment apartment program. Sharon makes sure the activities are well planned, and she organizes major events. She completes the residential activity calendar and is the first to have all her monthly notes completed. Sharon has also responded to the needs of other programs and has filled in as needed at the Olean CR and the Aldrich Street programs. Carol Ryan, RM can rely on her to complete all tasks assigned to her and feels that Sharon deserves this nomination for her dedication and commitment to STEL.  Congratulations!
