Jessamine Place 2020 Lizzie Winners


The “Lizzie Award” – “Above and Beyond” was developed in the loving memory of the late Lizzie Quarterman, who was an outstanding employee of The Jessamine Place. As a Direct Support Professional and Team Leader, she demonstrated “the extra mile” approach to supporting people served by the agency.

The Jessamine Place is very proud to announce the agency’s first place recipient for this prestigious award is Baerbel Johnson. She received a $100 gift card along with beautiful plague commemorating her recognition. Runner-ups were: Melinda McKinley and Latreace Reed. Both ladies were awarded certificates and gift cards. 

A direct support professional is a person who assists and advocates for individuals with a disability to lead a self-directed life while becoming full members of their community. DSPs encourage positive attitudes and behaviors that enhance community inclusion. A DSP engages in meaningful and rewarding work while helping fulfill dreams.
