Casey Davey, a behavioral health nurse, was named Nevada County Employee of the Year at the Board of Supervisors meeting Sept. 12.
It’s hard to imagine an employee who touches more departments and more individual lives than Davey. She works with our most vulnerable populations, and in so doing, works with Probation, Social Services, Behavioral Health, the Public Defender, the District Attorney, the Sheriff's Office, Child Protective Services, and many other departments. She responds to calls from partner non-profits in a way that goes above and beyond expectations. She excels in responding quickly, rapidly triaging any situation he/she confronts and in following-up to make sure that both the entity that called her and the person or people worked with have been assisted. She delivers medical care and medications, staffs shelters in the cold weather, and assists our unhoused citizens from the heart.
