Ivana Drcec, founder of Zero Worx, was presented the award at an Investiture Ceremony by the Honourable Frank Fagan, Newfoundland and Labrador's 13th Lieutenant Governor, on May 26, 2016. The award, the Priory Vote of Thanks from the national St. John Ambulance organization, recognizes the success of Ivana's program, Linxpot, at the local St. John's level (Brigade Division #321). Linxpot is the main offering of Zero Worx, and Ivana has volunteered her time and energy in implementing, operating and maintaining the program for SJA, as well as volunteering as a Medical First Responder (MFR).
This award, which was approved by the St. John Ambulance NL Council and executives of Brigade #321, recognizes the personal efforts of Ivana, who is originally from Croatia, but has still given back extraordinarily to her current home community of St. John's. Balancing the life of an entrepreneur and volunteer MFR is no easy task, but Ivana has always been up to the challenge and has seen great success in both fields.
The Genesis Centre is excited to see Ivana receiving the recognition she deserves for her great volunteer efforts here in the city. This award illustrates the dedication of Ivana as an entrepreneur and a volunteer, as well as illustrates the success of Linxpot itself, which Genesis is interested in adopting for internal use. From all of us here at Genesis, congratulations Ivana!
