September Shooting Star Award Winner

Aspire is proud to recognize Sasha Metzinger as our September Shooting Star Award Winner!


Each month Aspire collects outstanding employee recognition called Shooting Star nominations.  These are voted upon and awarded at our monthly staff meeting.  All of the monthly award winners are voted upon each year to select our yearly Shooting Star Award winner.

Sasha is always going above and beyond not just for the staff and people who live at 827 but for everyone who asks anything from her. One day in August Sasha assisted a gentleman to the ER where he was the admitted to the hospital after which she returned to 827 at 10:30pm past her scheduled shift. Once she was back it was noted that someone had fallent and Sasha assited her to the ER as well and was able to complete her documentation and finished her shift at 3am! This is just one instance of her always going above what is expected of her.

I also would like to give Sasha a shout out for how far she has come in the past year. She has joined committees, jumps at the chance to teach anything, loves mentoring new hires and new ACLS’, not just staff at 827. She has come out of her shell as a supervisor and has become more comfortable with difficult conversations and ensuring staff are on the right path.

Thank you Sasha, you are such a wonderful person to work with and you add so much to the agency as a whole with all your awesomeness!

Sasha has recently shown her dedication to the health and safety of the people we support when she found herself in an emergency room marathon. A gentleman had been ill for a while, but when he seemed tonot be himself he was asssited to the ER. Sasha was there for several hours while they ran various tests before he was admitted. Upont her return to 827 already outside of her normal shift, she made sure to document in a timely manner, When doing so, she would find herslf making yet another trip to the ER shortly when someone had fallen. She again spend quite a bit of time in the ER while they ensured the person had not sustained any serious injuries. When they were able to leave, she again made sure to document thoroughly before leaving that night. She had been there until the middle of the night but still made sure that all her i’s were dotted and t’s were crossed. Throughout the process she was professional and courteous, even when dealing with the intersting quirks of a guardian and a hospital staff that could work on their bedside manner. Sasha, we appreciate your dedication and thorough care of everyone you support.
