Employee Spotlight August 2019

Congrats to August’s Employee Spotlight recipients, Megan Buee and Chelsea Nelson.

A few months after implementation of the SIS-based payment system in April 2018, we had long lists of discrepancies, missing documents, and outstanding payments. Megan worked with a contact at the Department of Human Services payment office, DDPMs, and RCs to figure out how all the pieces of information work together, how to respond to various error codes, and how to rebill correctly to generate payment. More than a year later, everything was successfully paid and the process was working smoothly!

Quote from Megan Buee " I have worked at Kalix for almost 5 years. I'm pleased to be a part of the accounting team. I've made great friends and we have a good time at work. The billing process is tediou, but also very detail oriented. In the past 3 years, everything about the billing procedure has changed little by little and I've had to embrace the changes. To find the light at the end of the tunnel."

After a switch to healthier evening snacks at 1101, Chelsea used active supports principles to assist tenants to select and prepare snacks. The result is a greater variety of healthy snacks that people enjoy (and fewer complaints!).

Quote from Chelsea Nelson: "I have worked at the 1101 house for almost 3 years. Within those 3 years, I have watched each of the residents grow and accomplish so much including their goals. And that right there is why I love my job."
