Celebrating Compassion and Dedication: Andrea Kincy, TECH’s Employee of the Month

February 15, 2024

At TECH, our mission is not just a statement; it’s a commitment to enriching the lives of individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Behind every successful endeavor lies the dedication and passion of our staff members, and this month, we are proud to shine a spotlight on Andrea Kincy, Production DSP, our Employee of the Month.

Andrea’s journey with TECH spans an impressive five years, during which her dedication has left a mark on both our organization and the lives of those we serve. When asked what brought her to TECH, Andrea shares a heartwarming story of a friend who recognized her potential fit within our community. Since then, Andrea has become an integral part of our team, driven by her genuine love for interacting with both clients and fellow staff members.

Among the pillars that guide our work at TECH, Independence resonates most deeply with Andrea. For her, it’s the knowledge that she is making a tangible difference in the lives of our clients that fuels her passion and commitment every day. “Independence means empowering others to live their lives to the fullest,” Andrea reflects, embodying the spirit of our organization.

In her role, Andrea finds great fulfillment in the opportunity to connect with clients on a personal level, fostering meaningful relationships that transcend the bounds of a typical workplace. One of her fondest memories at TECH revolves around a Christmas party where she witnessed firsthand the joy and camaraderie shared among the individuals we serve. It’s moments like these that reaffirm Andrea’s belief in the transformative power of human connection.

Nathan Porter, Work Center Manager, says, ÔÇťAndrea has taken the time to get to know each of the individuals that she cares for on a personal level. She is very dedicated to the people that we serve.” He went on to say, “Andrea goes above and beyond to help better the lives of the people that we serve. Andrea is awesome at what she does.”

Outside of her work at TECH, Andrea enjoys spending quality time with her family, cherishing moments of relaxation and togetherness. Whether it’s watching movies, playing games, or simply enjoying each other’s company, Andrea’s devotion to her loved ones mirrors her dedication to our TECH family.

As she navigates life, Andrea finds inspiration in the timeless words of Maya Angelou: “You will face many defeats in life, but never let yourself be defeated.”

In honoring Andrea Kincy as our Employee of the Month, we celebrate not only her exceptional contributions but also the values she embodies: compassion, empathy, and a steadfast commitment to making a difference. Andrea, thank you for being an indispensable part of the TECH family and for inspiring us all to reach greater heights of excellence.
