Judy Collins: DSP of the Year!

Judy Collins was named Enable’s Direct Support Professional (DSP) of the Year for her exemplary service to our program participants, promoting their safety, facilitating their happiness, and creating connections with others. The DSP of the year is chosen from the employees whose exceptional performance is acknowledged each month through Enable’s Managing to Quality and Excellence Program.  Judy, a DSP at West Park Group Home, has worked with Enable for seven years. As DSP of the Year, she received a $500 check and will be honored at Enable’s Spring Gala.


Here’s what Judy’s managers say about her:


 “Judy has been essential to the running of the program. Her rapport with all the residents ensures that the best service is provided to all. Judy comes up with creative ideas to help consumers and solve any issues. Her advice and experience continues as a benefit to Enable.”


“Judy consistently demonstrates the willingness to learn how best to work with residents. She records behavior data, providing our behaviorist with invaluable information on each person’s progress. She is patient and assists the residents in socializing with each other.”


“Judy reacted excellently during a crisis. She is a huge team player who goes above and beyond daily.”


 “Judy is great at helping out with medical appointments, encouraging consumers through these difficult events, whether they are for dental or cardiology. When a resident needed a medical procedure and the house manager could not attend, Judy stepped in – on a non-scheduled workday – to speak for the resident and share her needs, wants, loves, and dislikes. Having worked with the consumer for five years, Judy could help the hospital staff understand the consumer, which in turn helped the consumer be more comfortable and have her needs better met.”


Congratulations and thank you, Judy!
