Alechia Randle – Louisiana Direct Support Professional of the Year
Alechia Randle has been a Direct Support Professional for 10 years. She is committed
to meeting the needs of all the individuals we support and is a reliable and dedicated leader who is always willing to help those around her reach their goals. She works with them one-on-one to ensure that their treatments are handled in a manner that fits their abilities.
The happiness of the individuals Alechia cares for is paramount. She plans holiday and birthday celebrations and thinks of ways to add fun to active treatments while in the home.
Alechia’s generosity and care extend beyond those in her immediate care. After a hurricane struck a neighboring town, she volunteered to pick up the individuals whose homes were impacted and brought them to her group homes to ensure they had somewhere safe to sleep. Alechia purchased clothing, toiletries, and comfort items to help ease the discomfort of being uprooted during a natural disaster.
Alechia builds strong relationships with her staff and co-workers and has created a great team with her kinship, humor, and working alongside them. She’s always positive no matter the situation.
