As a health promotion coordinator, Mikaela has a wealth of knowledge in public health practice and she has established many professional relationships with Wright County organizations in her two years of employment at HHS. She continually provides excellent customer service when working with program partners. Mikaela has a great attitude and she is always willing to help fellow co-workers and she frequently takes on extra jobs with enthusiasm. The person nominating Mikaela has this to say, “Recently, Mikaela’s work has been on supporting breastfeeding through Baby Café, the implementation of Nursing Mothers’ Rooms in workplaces, and bringing together local organizations for the Wright County Breastfeeding Coalition. These efforts provide resources and support for mothers who desire to breastfeed their babies. The response from community members has been great; mothers at Baby Café have been especially impressed and report that they wouldn’t still be breastfeeding without the support of Baby Café! Mikaela also works on enhancing safe and active transportation in the county and surrounding area. She advocates strongly for biking and walking paths and encourages local cities to create policies that help make the healthy choice the easy choice.” Thank you and congratulations Mikaela for your extraordinary customer service which makes you our August Employee of the Month.
