Deb Forward Employee of Month

Deb Forward's might be one of the first faces you see when you enter MCMH. And she always makes sure it's a pleasant and helpful one! Deb is being honored as MCMH's September Employee of the Month. Deb is known to be professional, helpful, pleasant and easy-going. She is greatly respected by all her co-workers as she provides a helping-hand, a comfortable atmosphere, a learning environment and overall sets a good example. She is great at sharing both personal and professional experiences to help others learn and improve their lives. She always puts the patient first, going out of her way to meet their needs. Deb is dependable and honest and is always willing to lend a helping hand. Deb is also a great motivator and is the glue that helps hold her team together. Deb is ready for when things get busy and is willing to go the extra mile to make sure everything runs smoothly. Deb is also well-known outside of MCMH for making a big difference in her church family. Deb is very deserving of the Employee of the Month honor! Congratulations Deb!

I am absolutely floored and totally humbled to be elected for Employee of the Month.  I tell people all the time that I LOVE my job.   It is so worthwhile to have a small part in making people feel better.  Even if it is just offering a smile, calming a family member or saying a quick prayer for them. However, I have to admit; I could not love my job as much as I do and be who I am without the people that I work with day in and day out.  Everyone is willing to work as a team and that’s what makes it so great! Thank you for the privilege of being September’s Employee of the Month."  - Deb Forward
