TEAM ADULT RESIDENTIAL – MILLCREEK Casandra Loving, BHT Supervisor
Casandra is such a positive person. She always listens attentively to the things I have to say; ideas I have, my needs (etc..) and does her best to meet them or help me figure out how to accommodate them. I have always felt like she genuinely cares about me as a person and values me as a team member. When I got a promotion and suddenly had a lot more responsibility that, at times I felt like I couldn't handle, she never once made me feel incompetent or that I wasn't right for the job. She supported me in every way she could and really helped me come into my own with the position. She really wants to help her team members and help them grow, even if that means letting them go and supporting them when they move on to the next thing. She's really an inspiration to me and has definitely really helped me feel like I finally fit in at Odyssey and that this is where I want to make a career for myself. In short, Casandra is AMAZING to work for!
Your the best boss I've ever had thank you for being ontop of everything

TEAM OUTPATIENT; SUGARHOUSE / REDWOODRachel Evans, Program Manager – Sugarhouse
Rachel Evans has gone above and beyond to keep Sugarhouse afloat. When our receptionist was out of office for maternity leave, she readily took over her responsibilities as well as maintained her own while she was away. She continued trying to hire someone to be at the front desk with little success and still maintained a positive attitude when she was working long hours with an elevated work load. She has been a kind and supportive individual for everyone, and is readily available to answer everyone's questions and help out when asked. As someone who is still pretty new to the office, and noticing other new staff, we all go to her for help and she is enthusiastic to help and is very patient with our learning curve. She shows resilience, organization, and high competency under stress and heavy work load. She did all of this with an authentic smile. Plus she's incredibly funny and always keeps morale up.
