June Employee of the Month
Dorothy Andrews has been with Asona since December. Dorothy is our employee of the month because of her outstanding attendance, and her willingness to help out wherever she is needed. Her primary client just moved from a large house to an apartment. She was instrumental in making this move happen. She helped sort, organize, and pack their whole house. On moving day, she helped them move, then immediately started unpacking, sorting, cleaning, and putting things away. Her paperwork is always on time and done correctly. All that, in addition to providing top-notch care for her clients as needed! Thank you, Dorothy!
