Lachelle Alexander

January 2020

Lachelle AlexanderLachelle is a Lead DSP and a shining example of 4 important characteristics. These characteristics have made her exemplary for our clients and anyone who has had the pleasure of working with her. She is dependable; her supervisor can always count on her to have his back at a moments notice. Her cleanliness is beyond impressive! I implore you to check out the site after she is done working her shift, as it is always spotless. Lachelle’s accountability for tasks and events that happen on site is always on point. You can count on her to complete any tasks assigned or communicated to her in a timely manner. Lastly, Lachelle’s communication skills are tremendously helpful to gain insight on all happenings that go on at the site. She always makes a point to address what grocery/cleaning items the house needs as well; which I had to include as it is very helpful.
