Employee of the Month
Yolanda (Yogi) Smith
Yogi goes above and beyond to make our clinics the best they can be. She genuinely cares about all of our patients and shows such compassion to everyone she encounters. She is always eager to learn new skills and gives 100% to everything she does. Main Street Clinic is a very fast paced environment and she handles every situation, whether it is an employee or patient, with such class and professionalism.
Since appointing Yogi as manager for Main Street Clinic, the clinic runs much smoother because she holds all employees accountable for everything they do and she handles situations as they occur. She expects nothing but the best from each of them. When the clinics are short staffed, Yogi is committed to getting her work completed in a timely manner. She has given up Saturdays and Sundays on many occasions to come in and get her work completed. Yogi is a mother of two small children and giving up her weekends after working from 6:30 to 4:00 shows true dedication. Several weeks ago I was at the Main Street Clinic at the start of their work day. At 7:55 A.M. she gathered up all employees in a circle to pray. I was completely humbled. I told Yogi afterwards how extremely blessed I was when she led the group in prayer, praying for each of them and praying for their day. She responded, “We do this every morning.” This is the kind of character she exhibits not only at work but in her daily life.
