Specialist Jodie Graham sends in a Shout Out to Kathleen Johnson, an exceptional supervisor who always makes time to provide support to her employees.
I wanted to share a positive story regarding my supervisor Kathleen Johnson. The last few weeks were extremely stressful for me and I was feeling burnt out and overwhelmed. I was handling a difficult case, trying to complete all of my case notes and everything associated with this case all in the timespan of a couple of weeks. My morale was very low and it was showing in my work. Kathleen helped me throughout the entire case. She also reminded me of the other tasks that I needed to complete and supported me by helping to prioritize my time. When I was feeling like I needed a break from the case due, Kathleen stepped in to help even more by doing additional work. I was able to speak with Kathleen about being feeling very stressed and she was extremely supportive. She let me know I could always come to her when I am feeling like this. All of the work she put in to make sure that I didn’t feel burnt out makes me very proud to work under her. Kathleen is a major support and has built such high morale within the unit even in times of stress. She makes herself available when there is an overwhelming situation and never hesitates to step in when she sees one of her workers dealing with a difficult case. I really wanted to share and recognize how much work she does for her unit.
