Employee of the Week: Susan Spring, Field Operations Officer, Environmental Health Department
November 16, 2012
ALBUQUERQUE, NM – Susan Spring, a Field Operations Officer for the Consumer Health Protection Division, is this week’s Employee of the Week.
As an 11 year veteran with the city, Ms. Spring knows all the interworkings of the Consumer Health Division. As such, she recently took the initiative to improve the Environmental Health Department Kiva database by updating and ensuring missing information was located and put into the record keeping system.
The database is vital because it tracks compliance prior to the division issuing permits for remodeling food establishments, various types of pools, and a wide variety of recreational water play areas. This updating effort fell outside Ms. Spring’s normal job duties.
"Her efforts have provided the Environmental Health Department with greater accuracy, increased efficiency, and reliable decisions. This has saved the Environmental Health Department precious time and allowed for the Department as a whole to function that much better," said Mayor Berry.
Ms. Spring was also recently recognized as a 2012 Environmentalist of the Year by the New Mexico Environmental Health Association.
