The TFS Connection information that matters

Meet Your TFS Staff: Sonya Burnett is the new Staffing Coordinator over the Nashville/Hermitage hub. She isn't new to TFS, just new to the caseload. Sonya has been with TFS over 2 years. Born and raised in Sewanee, Tennessee, she graduated from Franklin High School and left for Nashville to attend Tennessee State University. She graduated from TSU in 1985, and has been here ever since. One of her favorite things about working with the individuals she supports is helping them lead more independent lives and enhancing the quality of their lives. Something she likes about working with staff, and would like them to know, she is serious about getting the job done right but she also likes to have fun.

Her favorite things to do are: listen to music (Prince is her favorite), read books (comedy, romance, and non-fiction), and spend time with her grand-baby. Sonya loves her family at Faith Community Church and believes in prayer as a source of strength. Her role at FCC is Missionary of Help.

Sonya is over homes 1H-9H, and 12. If you need her, she can be reached at: sonya.burnett@nashvilletfs.org or 615-400-1242.

In the news: TFS is constantly hiring. The above link will take you to the current job listings on our TFS website. It takes a lot of staff to operate nearly 40 independent homes 24 hours each day with many of those homes also requiring 24 hour nursing supports. If you know of someone who would be great for this field, share the news! You can find more information at our TFS Facebook page by clicking below:

Staff Appreciation: Earlier this year we started TFS Appreciation Bucks. Whenever a staff goes above, and beyond, or is just being their usual, awesome self, they need to be recognized! Staff can receive "Appreciation Bucks" that translate into dollars when they spend them in the TFS Appreciation Bucks General Store. "Bucks" can be redeemed for gift cards, candles, Bluetooth speakers, TFS gear, t-shirts, tumblers, and more! If you are an external consumer (Conservator, Parent, Family Member, ISC, Therapist, DIDD or State employee), and would like to recognize a staff person, please contact Michele Callahan at: michele.callahan@nashvilletfs.org or 615-255-8870.

Thank you for partnering with the mission of TFS!
