Former clients are some of our finest employees at the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS), and today’s guest is no exception. When Tammy Thornsberry applied for Medicaid as a young mother-to-be, her case worker encouraged her to consider a job with the state. A year later, Thornsberry accepted a job at the Department for Community Based Services (DCBS). She became a case worker as a way to pay it forward and the rest is history. Thornsberry says every client has a story and should be treated with the utmost care and consideration. She feels the same way about those she supervises in Adult Medicaid, Medicaid and SNAP in the Northern Bluegrass Service Region. Hopefully, today’s conversation underscores our commitment to the health and well-being of Kentuckians on either side of the desk, inside and outside of the Cabinet.
