Every year, Sunrise Services has the honor of recognizing an Employee of the Year. It should come as no surprise that this is no simple task. Daily, we are reminded of the hard work, dedication and perseverance our fellow employees bring to the workplace; just one of the many reasons that make Sunrise Services such a special place to work.
This year’s recipient, Amanda Faasse, is being recognized for her amazing work in our Behavioral Health Department. As Clinical Director, Amanda leads the clinical staff as they continue to provide high quality care to our clients. She also provides supervision to MHPs seeking licensure and interns working to get through their graduate programs. Her mentorship and coaching has helped dozens of professionals not only achieve their professional goals but also to become highly skilled clinicians working with some of the most complex clients they will ever have the challenge of treating in the course of their professional lives.
Amanda does all this with good humor and a giving heart. She is ever-mindful of the quality of treatment provided by the team she supervises, believing that every client deserves the very best that we can offer him/her.
