Lois is a team player and will help out wherever needed. Lois works very hard to keep all programs running really well. She communicates well with her staff of all ages. She listens to her staff when they have new ideas, concerns, or input. She is always looking for new programs to offer at Alta Canyon. She evaluates each program and looks at new ways to advertise for programs that need more attention. Because she leads by example and has great people skills, many of her seasonal staff return year after year. Lois is an asset to Alta Canyon and Sandy City. She truly loves what she does!
Jennifer is a Paramedic/Firefighter at Sandy City and works part time as a nurse for IHC. She always goes above and beyond with patients. She gives her undivided attention and care to the patient, and always has their best interests in mind. When returning from calls she focuses and discusses what was going on medically with the patients and where we could help them in their process of healing. She is a positive person and brings that attribute to work. She is always concerned with the welfare of her family, friends and co-workers. She is a friend to all and a fantastic employee.
Jake is always ready and willing to help with anything. He often performs tasks beyond the scope of his job description, just to help out the department. After the Public Works fire, Jake spent countless hours moving, organizing, and helping others get set up. He made several trips in his personal vehicle, brought in his own tools and helped us get back up and running. He is detailed and knowledgeable – without his dedication, there would be no connection between the GIS real world and the capital improvement projects Public Works completes. You couldn’t meet a more genuine guy and Public Works is lucky to have Jake!
