Employee Spotlight Series: Dawn Weber
In our 2019 Employee Spotlight Series, we are creating space to highlight the nearly 65 employees of Buckeye Hills Regional Council. Every year, we celebrate as a region the tremendous impact of our programs and services - an investment of nearly $1.2 billion into southeast Ohio since our inception in 1968 - but it’s our employees who work hard every day to breathe life into our mission and pour out into the eight-county region we serve.
Follow along as we feature three different employees every month!
Dawn is the Home Care Director for Buckeye Hills Regional Council and has been in her current position since June 2014.
How would you describe your job to someone who is completely unfamiliar?
Dawn: Overseeing services that are coordinated to help individuals with needs be able to remain in their homes and communities.
What do you find most rewarding about your position?
D: Being able to help individuals continue to safely reside in their homes and communities.
Why do you think the mission of Buckeye Hills is important to our region?
D: The importance of Buckeye Hills as a whole is the ability to improve the quality of life for the individuals and communities that we serve.
What is one thing you wish more people realized about Buckeye Hills?
D: I wish more people realized the scope of the work that we do. People either know us because of the Aging & Disability component or because of the Development component, but not all. Most often people do not realize the breadth of work that is done through the agency.
If you had to choose a favorite program, service, or initiative of Buckeye Hills, which would that be and why?
D: All programs play an important role; my heart, of course, is with the services we are able to provide for the aging and disabled populations. But that being said, many programs and efforts through the agency improve the overall quality of life for our region. They all play an important role.
What are you looking forward to most in your position this year?
D: Impacting and improving as many lives as we can through our programs and regional, statewide advocacy.
