Lisa Begley awarded the 2024 Mary Hockstein Award for Excellence in Support Leadership

BAYADA Director of Learning Lisa Begley was selected among several worthy nominees to win BAYADA’s 2024 Mary Hockstein Award for Excellence in Enterprise Support. A committee of her peers at BAYADA Home Health Care, a leading nonprofit health care provider, chose Begley for her “superpower” to connect with others and inspire her teammates to be the best version of themselves.

mary-hockstein-award-winnerBegley, who has spent the last 14 years with BAYADA, has been adaptable and an innovator. At the start of the pandemic, Begley kickstarted virtual learning programs and launched the Compassionate Learning Webinar. She also championed new learning opportunities for employees’ professional development, like MasterClass and Udemy.

Begley isn’t just known for her ingenuity. Her sense of humor and positivity are infectious, and she’s eager to mentor others to share all she’s learned with the next generation of leaders.

Recognized in Philadelphia, PA, Begley was surprised and accepted her award from BAYADA Manager of the HR Care Center Keri Huneycutt, the very first Mary Hockstein award recipient.

“This award is all about Mary, and everything that she did. It really is an honor to be mentioned in the same sentence with Mary Hockstein because she was a gem.”

— Lisa Begley, BAYADA Director

“Lisa is a true reflection of The BAYADA Way, and even more so, of Mary's legacy of innovation, kindness, and love.”

— Eric Thule, BAYADA Chief of Staff
