CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Hamilton County Public Health inspector Mandy Bartel of Wyoming, OH was recognized by the Ohio Environmental Health Association as Sanitarian of the Year. 

The prestigious title was awarded this week at the Association's annual conference.

Bartel, a five-plus year veteran in Hamilton County Public Health's Environmental Health division is a generalist working in food service, nuisance and housing, mobile home parks, campgrounds, swimming pools, schools and public accommodation facilities.

Her interest in working with hoarders led her to develop a partnership with mental health professionals, while completing extensive training to better understand hoarding behavior. The training and partnerships allow her to expand the role of sanitarian and work with hoarders to not only clean their properties, but to also access mental health providers to work on the core of the problem.

"Mandy's interest in providing sustainable, long-term solutions to hoarding led her, of her own volition, to establish partnerships with regional mental health professionals," says Hamilton County Health Commissioner Tim Ingram.  "She has completed training to provide her with significant background in understanding hoarding behavior and how to implement her understanding when working with the public to remediate hoarding episodes.
