"MHP Joseph began her employment with Wexford Health Services at Danville Correctional Center on Aug. 20, 2018, and is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor."

"To say Ms. Joseph is good at her job would be a true understatement," Adkins continued.

Ms. Joseph makes it a priority to keep staff and patients safe. She is very proactive in making sure that the needs of patients are addressed. If concerns do arise, she is certain to follow up with other departments as needed per her scope and chain of command.

She goes above and beyond daily to do her job to the best of her ability, whether on site or off site."
