50th Anniversary Employee Spotlight: Josette Brower
Merakey is turning 50 years old this year!
We have a lot to celebrate this year including our incredible workforce! A number of employees have been with Merakey for many of those years, and they deserve a spotlight for all their hard work and dedication!
Look for more employee spotlights in The Pulse, on digital signage, and on Facebook!
Clinical Support staff, Josette Brower, BSW has worked with Merakey for 37 years! Josette states, “I enjoy being able to give back to the community by working with families and children who need a support system.”
Josette is thankful that while working with Merakey, she was able to obtain her degrees in Mental Health/Social Services at Community College and her Bachelor of Social Work at Temple University School of Social Work. Since then, she has applied her educational skills and theories to helping even more families.
Throughout her life, Josette has learned the value of hard work that was instilled in her by her parents since she is the oldest of 14 siblings. Her passion for hard work is shared by her team at the large and diverse community at 265 East Lehigh Avenue in Philadelphia where she supports the Behavioral Health program for children.
Working at Merakey has taught Josette to be humble when working with children and their unique needs. “I believe everyone deserves a second chance to improve their lives and no one should be left behind,” expressed Josette.
