Josie Kirchner receives Supervisory Excellence Award

Port St. Lucie – Devereux Community Based Care Director of Clinical Services Josie Kirchner is this year’s winner of the Devereux Supervisory Excellence Award.

Kirchner, who recently was promoted to her current post, won the award for her service to the organization’s Road to Success program, which prepares teens and young adults for life outside foster care.

“I am humbled beyond words,” said a surprised, teary Kirchner as she accepted the award during her first Senior Management Team meeting. “What is truly excellent is my team.”

Kirchner is one of 17 supervisors from throughout the nation to receive the award, which is given to one supervisor from each of Devereux’s centers or affiliated agencies throughout the country.

“The award specifically recognizes Josie’s demonstrated ability to foster personal and professional growth of her staff, and demonstrated ability to provide appropriate and timely praise and recognition,” said Christina Kaiser, community relations director for Devereux CBC.

Kirchner was nominated by her Road to Success team.

“Your nomination came from your direct reports, who, as a group, commended you as a role model and a colleague, and expressed their appreciation for the guidance and recognition you provide them,” Kirchner’s former supervisor, Program Director Denise Natalizio, said as she presented the award.

Devereux Community Based Care is the non-profit agency responsible for the child-welfare system in Indian River, Martin, Okeechobee and St. Lucie counties. For more information, please visit us at
