Employee of the Month
SDC would like to congratulate Victor Santiago-Guzman and thank him for his outstanding service as a Direct Support Professional.
Victor is a Direct Support Professional at the Sylvan Residence. He is a true gentleman and although soft spoken, he is always outgoing toward other staff, parents and most importantly with the individuals we serve at SDC. He routinely goes out of his way to look out for our individuals and their needs regardless of being assigned to do so or not. Recently, Victor went above and beyond the call of duty by taking the initiative to help one of our individuals seek employment at a local neighborhood store. Not only is he proactive in his approach to the clients, but he consistently demonstrates a willingness to contribute when needed.
Victor has been with the agency for 3 years, however, in such a short amount of time he has made a big impact on the lives of the individuals we serve. Victor’s upbeat attitude has a positive effect on individuals and staff alike, which makes him a pleasure to work with. Victor was nominated for this award because he is an amazing staff member, team player and most importantly, he is flexible and willing to adapt his role as needed. He remains positive, displays teamwork, demonstrates a curiosity to learn more by being present, engaged and asking questions that are relevant to his professional growth, and he goes above and beyond to make sure he completes the work that is needed.
SDC is proud to have Victor Santiago-Guzman on its team!
