DCS Specialist Hilary Case gives Shout Outs to her fellow employees Aurora Beltran, Patrick Amos and Mary Schied for helping her get through a hectic day:
I had an absolutely horrific morning and had to come in late. Both Aurora and Mary responded to me extremely quickly and were willing to cover my meetings for the entire day should I need to stay home. When I came in around 11:45, I was looking over my adoptions case that was scheduled at 1:00PM that day. Unfortunately, it had been copied and filed completely wrong and the entire three volumes of files were not properly arranged. I felt totally defeated knowing that I had only about 30 minutes to fix this. Without any request, Patrick, Aurora, and Mary immediately began helping to fix both the adoptions and the mom's file. The four of us worked diligently to remove all of the documents from the three large volumes, reorganize them, and put them together properly. There is absolutely no possible way that I could have done this on my own with enough time to get the case ready and be across town by 1:00PM. Each of them worked during hours where they should have been eating lunch just to help me out—something I probably would not have asked for, but really needed. The case was perfect by the time I got there and the only complaint from the staff was that my case wasn't quite as interesting as my typical transfer . The three of them have always demonstrated exemplary leadership skills and have been willing to help me (and others!) out when we most need it—they should be commended for this and I am extremely grateful!
Thank you Aurora, Patrick and Mary for helping Hilary and others out when they need it! Your teamwork is very deserving of a Shout Out!
