It is with great pleasure that I recommend Ms. Nineveh Haysbert [for]… her exceptional caliber of talents and skills in child psychology, childhood development, and management of childhood behavioral challenges… She is always the epitome of professionalism, character, integrity, and positive motivation.
Since Nineveh and I first met six years ago, I have been impressed by her empathic nature and ability to provide wise, sound counsel; she truly possesses a compassionate heart and a thoughtful way of listening to what others have to say… She has an innate ability, more accurately, a God-given talent to connect with others, and she serves as the support and counsel for numerous people, both personally and professionally… Nineveh is a consummate professional and takes a logical, yet open-minded approach when it comes to resolving problems and issues. She knows how to strike the perfect balance between compassion and practicality. She is a talented counselor in her own right and has been able to further hone her skills through a myriad of professional experiences…
Dear Mr. Price, I am writing you at the request of my brother-in-law Jerry 1. Scott. He was blinded several years ago and became involved with your agency. His counselor was a lady named "Janelle". She was the first person who contacted Ninevah Haysbert (Benefits Planner) on Jerry's behalf. That is who this email is about. Ninevah Haysbert. She has been the only person to actually do what she said she would do. His SSDI check was stopped back in May 2010. After almost a year Ninevah got it straightened out. He even got back pay because the checks never should have been stopped to begin with. Then Ninevah also got his checks fixed so he will receive them on the third instead of in the middle of the month. I realize these may be trivial matters to some but to someone in Jerry's situation these matters are life sustaining issues. And it was important to him that someone be told how grateful he is and was to have Ninevah help him. He reports: "she went above and beyond…
Ms Haysbert is a very bright person with a solid academic foundation, which she has augmented by completing 34 hours of training in Motivational Interviewing. She is cheerful and friendly, and puts people at ease with her. She seems to develop rapport with clients readily…Because of Ms Haysbert’s insight and quickness of mind, she would be an asset to any organization that desires to improve its quality of service and enhance its internal functioning.
..Haysbert, I want to thank you for your support and involvement in the social outing that was held, on Saturday, May 7, 2016. As you know, the event was held at a ropes course in Darnestown Maryland developed by "go-adventures". Participants who are enrolled in Hampton and Howard's violence prevention program called The Promise Program (NIMHD Grant) had an opportunity to meet, communicate, collaborate, engage in problem solving tasks, support each other, and bond while having fun. The event was a big success and you played an important role in making the event become the success that it was!
I work for OKDRS… Our office at Shepherd Mall… I wanted to send a message your way to say that people in Oklahoma still remember you and they think you were awesome!
