You helped Workers’ Compensation Division tremendously in figuring out how to go about the work of reviewing what we do, how we do it, and how we could improve our effectiveness. You did this with great patience and humor. Feedback from our staff and managers was consistently very positive about their work with you. You demonstrated yourself to be a very skilled facilitator in a number of different settings. You also provided the executive management team with greater insight into how the process was working. You were straightforward and timely with providing feedback from review participants, which helped us to identify potential issues needing to be addressed. I’m very impressed with your work.
John Shilts, Administrator (ret.), Workers’ Compensation Division
