Menands, NY: September 30, 2012: eBizDocs is proud to congratulate team member, Catherine Allen, as a recipient of the 2012 William B. Joslin Outstanding Performer Award.
Catherine, a positive woman full of enthusiasm who has achieved much in her life, has also been a valuable and outstanding member of the E-BizDocs Team since October of 2010. When asked about her work at eBizDocs, Catherine proudly states, “This is my dream job.”
A very quiet person with an intense interest in accepting new opportunities, Catherine has worked very diligently at her station to learn, improve and has become one of the best at what she does. She has also been an advocate for fellow employees, helping and assisting wherever she can. These qualities have long been recognized by everyone at eBizDocs, including naming Catherine as employee of the month in February 2012.
Outside of work, Catherine was a part of the U.S. Team in the Special Olympics held in Beijing, China a few years ago. “Unable to play herself at the time due to a foot injury, Katie continued on to China to support the rest of her team, just like she does here at eBizDocs,” stated Ed Canary, Director of Operations. In June 2011, she was once again on the U.S. Team Special Olympics, this time competing in volleyball. Catherine helped lead the team to winning the silver medal, which to this day she wears very proudly.

She brings that competitive spirit and drive from her Olympic experience with her every day.”
