Rebecca Cheney of North Central Phoenix was among those honored by Southwest Behavioral & Health Services with its 2016 Employee of the Year Awards.
Cheney, a Birth-5 Family Coach, is described by her coworkers as the “epitome of professionalism.” She goes above and beyond her normal duties by providing more case management and follow-through with clients than what is expected of her. She has put together trainings on her own for coworkers to help familiarize them with her role and how to best work with the age 0 to 5 population.
The Employee of the Year Awards recognize individuals in each of SB&H’s program areas. Employees are encouraged to nominate their fellow coworkers who have gone above and beyond in fulfilling SB&H’s mission. From there, a selection committee, comprised of staff from different areas of the organization, chooses the recipients based on their nominations.
