Phoenix Recognizes Top Staff This Month

This month, we recognized several staff members for their outstanding work: our manager at Afton House and our staff at Viking House.

Manager of the Month - Carol Metzger

Carol has been working with The Phoenix Residence for several years as a Direct Support Professional at a few of our Phoenix locations. When the manager position opened up at Afton, we asked her to assist in some of the managerial duties at the home and then she transitioned into the Program Manager role.  She has always been the person to try something new, and always gives her best effort and offers suggestions for change. Afton is a very busy home with people and agencies coming and going with the medically complex routines. The family members adore Carol and love the welcoming approach of everyday life their loved ones have at Afton. They really are living their best life! We appreciate all that she does. We are all are so grateful for Carol and her Afton team.
