At DNAngels, we pride ourselves on the dedication and passion of our volunteers who work tirelessly to reunite families and uncover the mysteries hidden within DNA. This month, we are thrilled to shine the spotlight on Carolanne Murphy, our Volunteer of the Month, whose exceptional contributions and unwavering commitment have left an indelible mark on our organization.
From the moment Carolanne joined our team, it was evident that she possessed a rare combination of talent, empathy, and dedication. As a seasoned Search Angel, Carolanne could have easily stuck to her familiar routines. However, she embraced the opportunity to immerse herself in DNAngels’ casework methods with enthusiasm and humility, demonstrating a willingness to adapt and learn at every turn.
Carolanne’s proficiency in solving cases is matched only by her extraordinary ability to provide emotional support to our clients during their moments of vulnerability. With her warmth and compassion, she effortlessly connects with those in need, making them feel heard, understood, and valued throughout the entire process.
What truly sets Carolanne apart is her unwavering spirit of collaboration and generosity. Whether she’s lending a helping hand in The Research Assistance Room or consulting on complex cases, Carolanne’s dedication knows no bounds. Her recent instrumental role in solving a Long Term case stands as a testament to her tenacity, diligence, and ‘across the pond’ legwork that brought closure to a family in need.
Team Lead Rachel Kiley Trout aptly sums up Carolanne’s contributions, noting her embodiment of DNAngels’ core values: competence, empathy, and collaboration. Similarly, Team Lead Heidi Billingsley Keuper highlights Carolanne’s innate ability to communicate with clients, blending professionalism with genuine warmth and understanding—a delicate dance that she executes flawlessly.
Additionally, Carolanne is a core member of DNAngels International outreach. DNAngels recently expanded to take cases from the UK, and Carolanne was the first person to answer our call to action. It’s noteworthy that Carolanne currently resides in Scotland, a testament to the global reach and impact of DNAngels’ mission.
As we celebrate Carolanne Murphy’s achievements, we look forward with great anticipation to the remarkable journey that lies ahead. Her exemplary service and unwavering dedication serve as an inspiration to us all, reminding us of the profound impact that one individual can have in making a difference in the lives of others.
Thank you, Carolanne, for your invaluable contributions to DNAngels. We are privileged to have you as part of our DNAngel family, and we eagerly anticipate the many more lives you will touch and transform in the days to come.
