I am an employment specialist with over 13 years of experience providing employment and case management services in Mecosta, Osceola, Lake, Newaygo, Montcalm, Wexford and Clare Counties. I am a local business owner and a vendor of Michigan Rehabilitation Services. I assist individuals with barriers with obtaining and maintaining employment, by directing, teaching & mentoring skill sets. I have formed valuable relationships in the community with business owners/employers where I can do direct employment placements and provide on-site job coaching. I also connect my consumers with resources in the community to assist with other basic needs such as housing and transportation.
