Staff Spotlight: Maylee Calvo
The last month has been incredibly challenging, but sometimes the most difficult times bring out the best in people, and never has this been more apparent than in the last few weeks. Bideawee is considered an essential business so many of our staff members have continued to go out, ride empty subways, put their own fears aside, and show up for work so that our animals receive the care they need. We truly have the best employees and volunteers and are grateful to each and every one of them. Maylee Calvo is one of those employees and today we’re taking a moment to acknowledge her selfless efforts during this time.
Maylee is known for her upbeat attitude but we would have all understood if she was not her normal self in the face of so much fear and uncertainty. However, this wasn’t the case; if she was frightened or sad, she didn’t show it. Instead, she remained positive and cheerful, helping to care for and support clients, animals, and her colleagues. Despite difficult circumstances, she came into work religiously, even filling in last minute when other colleagues were out sick. She always puts the animals first, is a pleasure to work with, and her positive energy was exactly what her team needed during these challenging times. Thank you, Maylee, and thank you to all the amazing colleagues and volunteers who have been right there beside you. You are all HEROES.
