Employee of the Month: Vanessa Monsavis
We are pleased to announce that Vanessa Mosavis is our Employee of the Month for November. Vanessa, blind since birth, joined the Dallas Lighthouse team three years ago. She has eagerly taken on different tasks throughout her time here. She has been a key team member in packaging and now in manufacturing, working on our paper-based binder product line.
“Vanessa has been an excellent worker. I can depend on her to do whatever is needed,” says her supervisor, Maribel Treminio.
Vanessa enjoys working at the Lighthouse and takes part in our employment training services to update her skills. She hopes that her computer training will eventually lead to a computer-based position within the organization.
Congratulations Vanessa, for being our Employee of the Month for November. Keep up the good work!
