Here are a few things that were included in their nomination forms: ATHENA LUNSFORD "I recently hit my one year mark at OHFA and I am beyond happy that I made this move. Athena has been an amazing role model, leader, and mentor. When I interviewed for this job, I told them I wanted to work with an amazing team and that's exactly what she has compiled in PC." "Athena leads by example and never dismisses us or an issue we have as trivial. I have received nothing but support from her and yes, that includes any constructive criticism that is needed. She treats everyone the same, and with importance, from our teammates to our residents." JOY JONES "Joy is extremely responsive to the needs of any employee that comes to her for help. Her willingness to step-up and assist co-workers, listen and answer questions, and her ability to provide accurate information quickly demonstrates why she deserves this award. Joy does her best (and succeeds) to ensure that payroll and benefits are handled timely and accurately. Her attitude, kindness, professionalism, and knowledge are not always the standard for someone with her unique responsibilities." "Payroll and Benefits are two of the most important aspects of any career regardless of where someone works. All OHFA staff can rest assured there are no issues with either of these critical parts of their work life. Joy is sheer joy (pun intended) to work with every day!" ATHENA LUNSFORD Compliance Operations Chief JOY JONES Payroll and Benefits Coordinator Athena Lunsford and Joy Jones accept their awards as the 2022 Employees of the Year from OHFA Executive Director Shawn Smith.
