Tiffany Poole – Lee

Twenty years ago, Tiffany Poole started as a DSP at Koinonia, and soon became a team leader and ultimately a home supervisor. She currently juggles 2 homes and has wonderful, positive relationships with the staff in both.

It is evident by her warm rapport with all her individuals that she has great compassion for this job. She has been at her current home for 10 years. Even with the challenges of the past 3 years, Tiffany is still holding strong, with an outstanding work ethic and ability to work independently.

Flexible and willing to work at other homes during times of transition, Tiffany asks for assistance when she needs it, but has a solid knowledge of what a supervisor is supposed to do. She has great vision and insight on how to work with DSPs, inherently knowing when staff will need additional training. “I don’t worry about the house when Tiffany is there,” Jackie says.

About The Peter Nebenzahl Champions Award

The Peter Nebenzahl Champion Award was created by Nancy Nebenzahl, a family member of an individual we serve.

The award is given annually to five deserving Koinonia DSPs who are living and applying the principles of trauma-informed care to the people that Koinonia serves.
