Bobbi Jean Tanberg Honored as Los Angeles County Employee-of-the-Month

The Board of Supervisors today honored Bobbi Jean Tanberg as the June 2005 Employee-of-the-Month.

Tanberg is a 15-year county employee and she currently serves as an Occupational Therapy Assistant with the Department of Health Services at the Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center in Downey. There, she provides a wide range of services for both children and adults with physical disabilities.

Tanberg, an enthusiastic sports fan, set her sights on making the U.S. Women’s Wheelchair Basketball Team in 2000, and after many years of hard work she made the team. Her positive outlook on life makes her instrumental in the Positive Self-Image Life Coach Program and she also serves as an excellent role model at Rancho.

On her personal time, Tanberg is a passionate community advocate for the disabled. In 2004, she developed and implemented the spinal cord injury helpline which helps spinal injury patients locate much needed community resources. Bobbi’s tireless work in the community is a tremendous inspiration to us all," said Knabe. We are very lucky to have such a devoted person working at Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center.
