    Truth be told I would rather set myself on fire tha to deal with the director of the Mary Martha house in Ruskin Florida. Her name is NAME WITHELD, without a doubt the most unprofessional human being that I have ever met in my life. THIS FACILITY NEEDS A NEW DIRECTOR!! Somewhere along the line this lady forgot that she can be replaced by someone who is capable of doing their job without being biased, rude, judgmental and cruel. I could come up with at least a dozen other adjectives but I think those should suffice. I will say this, the case workers Morgan, Susan and Shannon are amazing ladies and do their job very well. For the eight days that I was in their program they treated me with compassion and respect, however the director is incapable of speaking to people in a KIND manner. Typical alpha female. (eyeroll). Grievances and complaints will be filed against this individual and I will persevere until she is either reprimanded for her actions or replaced by someone capable of doing the job. Remember my name... Adrianne Rodriguez, the last client she will ever disrespect, antagonize, criticize and talk down to!
