Meet Emily Melnick: August Employee of the Month

Happy August! It’s a new month and that means we are bursting at the seams to introduce you to our newest member of the Employee of the Month club– Emily Melnick.

Miss Emily is a Teacher Assistant and Center Opener at our Mars, PA center. But, her positive impact on the team, community and company as a whole is what we admire most.

From day one, Emily has demonstrated the dedication, flexibility, positive attitude, and charisma that we look for in a Doodle team member. As a Center Opener, Emily is an expert at multitasking, remaining calm, and giving direction to coworkers in an encouraging way. She has created positive relationships with parents and children alike, and is often a comforting shoulder or listening ear when children or families need some extra support.

Emily is also a Center Ambassador, responsible for creating a happy team culture among her coworkers. Whether it’s being “pied” in the face, making treats for the staff, or shouting out recognition to peers’ accomplishments on a daily basis, Emily is a ray of sunshine for our

She constantly shows her commitment to the center but what takes it to the next level is her dedication to the surrounding community as well. Recently, Emily organized a Doodle Bugs! team for a Children’s Hospital walk, and raised $1,000 to donate to the foundation.  Emily took the time to reach out to staff members and families to help reach this goal. Several families showed their support at the walk, so Emily organized a meeting place for the group and welcomed each family. After the walk, Emily sent thank you letters to families who donated and participated. Emily saw an opportunity to make a difference and got to work!

Emily is a shining star. We are honored to have Miss Emily on our team, she helps us all shine a little brighter.
