Hi! I’m Lori. About two years ago I called my VR counselor and asked if I could go to Aspire to help me find a job. I was a little nervous about going back to work, however, I knew that I was going to go back to work would help me meet new people and give me money and pleasure. My new job coach helped me look for a job online and helped me to fill out applications and practice interviews. I looked for a job in the newspaper. My job coach shared the job that she found. My job coach found a housekeeping job and I was interested and set up the interview. She came with me at the interview and I was not as nervous. I got the job – I was excited! The first day I made a mistake. My boss was understanding and my job coach helped me to be – not to get upset and I learned and went on. My boss and my job coach talked to each other and helped me to learn the job. My job helped me to build up confidence and I had a promotion and a raise this year. In fact, I was selected as an artist in the – for the spring art show. I’m Lori and that’s my story!
