    Ms. Michelle Ferrer is a Property Associate at JL Young, where she has shown outstanding job performance and leadership while Assistant Manager Annette Ruiz was out on Family Medical Leave Absence (FMLA). While Michelle Ferrer was facing health issues herself, she took over some of the Assistant Manager responsibilities while the actual manager was on FMLA, including receiving and posting rents for all 450 residents at JL Young and the Annex building. Michelle also sent out notices to all late rent payers while carrying out her daily responsibilities. Although Michelle has always excelled in her qualities as an exemplary worker, during this time she was able to demonstrate the ability to motivate and promote cooperation among office and maintenance employees. Michelle was proactive, creative, showed a positive attitude and outstanding customer service towards residents, coworkers and contractors while fulfilling both responsibilities. For this reason we want to recognize Michelle Ferrer as employee of the month.

    Caitlyn Liberto has been with the Tampa Housing Authority for approximately five years; she began as an intern in the Bridges Program for PPS and was then hired by the Assisted Housing Department over 2 years ago. Caitlyn became a Project Housing Counselor during the commencement of the Rental Assistance Demonstration conversion and had to learn various regulations for both RAD and Project Based Programs. She took on her role as Project Based/RAD Housing Counselor with a strong work ethic and a willingness to learn and has represented this position well. Caitlyn handles our assisted living facility property, Palm Terrace , along with MLK (homeless project), MHC (homeless project), project based, and RAD properties by effectively working with the property staff and keeping organized records. She had such an impact with all the programs that the 3rd party managing agents for the various programs provided such positive feedback on her performance and asked that she remain in that position. She continues to work hard and learn the Assisted Housing Department programs with a positive attitude and determination. Caitlyn is professional and reliable and continues to be a valuable member of the RAD/Project Based team. Ms. Liberto is a dedicated employee and a team player, she is always at the forefront when the department is short staffed to assist with clients not on her caseload and jumps in to process files when needed without question. Caitlyn is also always making herself available to assist new staff in training and is open to answering questions to help her co-workers, she is a definite asset to the department and the agency.
