Jessica has that, along with a shovel and a basket as she uncovers business opportunities and does the hard work to make the work happen and get it done.”

Honorees for the distinction receive a gift and a “thank you” message from Brightway’s Executive Leadership. They also move on to be considered for Employee of the Quarter.
