 From Dr. Maria Russo-Appel, Eastern Division Medical Director:
 
I would like to take a moment to publicly thank Dr. Todd Fausnaught.
 
Todd stepped right up to the plate to become one of leads in referral development in Philadelphia at the expense of his own personal life, flying down to Philly nearly every week. He gets meetings arranged, makes contacts and gives thorough feedback to all of us on the Philly team. This is all in conjunction with managing our other three sites in PA and carrying a caseload and participating in committee work. He does all of this with great enthusiasm. He has become a true leader in Pennsylvania and I am personally grateful to him for his leadership.
Thank you Todd. You are an asset to CleanSlate Centers.
 
From Bob Wilson, Chief Human Resources Officer:
 
Todd:
 
Thank you for stepping up as a leader at a time when we really needed it in preparing to go into the Philly/PA market. I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the first Dyad Leadership training in which you were a participant. Your genuine interest and active participation in the training  was indicative of someone who looked to continually improve and learn. Of course continual improvement and learning are two key skills and qualities of leaders. 
 
Your willingness to go above and beyond are key behaviors of a warrior. Thank you for modeling our values and being a Warrior of Hope and helping us work towards our mission.
