A Letter of Thanks to Sweetser

Dear Amy,

As I leave my position here at the Department of Health and Human Services, I wanted to take a moment to let you know what a total inspiration April Perkins-Monahan has been to me as we have worked in the Wrap-Around process with the XYZ family. April's enthusiasm, determination, and strengths-based practice have truly taught me what the "wrap-around" philosophy can do.

April is a great asset to your organization. In my work with her, she has managed to bring a very resistant family to the table in a caring, compassionate, and creative manner, and has facilitated their nearly miraculous transformation into a motivated family capable of setting goals and meeting them. This transformation has been due to April's dedication to them. They have been blessed to have her in their cheering section!

And so have I. I have been very fortunate to be under April's "tutelage," so to speak. Although she may not have known it, it was April who inspired me to apply for a professional position which will involve Wrap-Around facilitation. I will take April's example with me to my next employment opportunity with Kennebec Behavioral Health, and for that, I am deeply grateful.

My very best,

Jahneene M. Nickerson, LSW
