Desiree Merchant, Lund’s Program Management Assistant, was awarded Employee of the Quarter for her incredible work and dedication to Lund since joining the organization in 2005.

“I am humbled and honored to work with Desiree every single day. She is a consistent, dependable, loyal, motivated and passionate member of the Lund team,” said Residential Director Kim Coe at the award presentation.

Coe also noted that Merchant is a role model to the families Lund works with because she is able to empathize in real and genuine ways.

“She has walked the walk and talked the talk. She used the opportunities that she was presented with to establish herself as an independent, self-sufficient, exemplary citizen and an outstanding mother,” said Coe.

For Merchant, going the extra mile, is just business as usual.

“Somebody helps me so I’m going to help them and you don’t think twice about it. You just pay it forward,” said Merchant.

But those around Merchant insist she goes well beyond the scope of her job description and not to be fooled by her modesty.

“Desiree is the first to volunteer to help and she follows through without complaint,” said Coe. “Desiree steps up to the plate for the greater good of Lund always. She is courageous, kind and has unquestionable integrity, loyalty and pride.”

Congratulations, Desiree. Lund is lucky to have you on our team.
