[August 12, 2011]  Amy Denney was honored as August Employee of the Month at Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital for going above and beyond normal working duties during the hospital's move earlier this year.

"She made everyone at ALMH look and sound fantastic, from the annual report to the Web pages to all of the press releases," said co-worker April Jensen, Abraham Lincoln Healthcare Foundation coordinator. "She is also a great teacher and allows others to grow with great encouragement."

Denney has worked as communications specialist for ALMH for nearly three years. Previously, she has worked at several daily newspapers in central Illinois, in both the advertising and editorial ends of the business. She earned her master's degree in public affairs reporting from University of Illinois at Springfield and holds a bachelor's degree from Illinois State University, where she studied journalism, public relations and political science.

At ALMH, she oversees the employee newsletter and the annual report, and she writes press releases. She also works on advertising campaigns and a range of other communication projects and events.

"I love that every day of my job is different," Denney said. "I get to do all my favorite things -- write stories and write photos every week. I love working for an organization with such strong values and a clear mission, which is really quite inspiring. I'm constantly learning from my co-workers, and I've made so many friends at ALMH, too."
