Adrien came to Easterseals New Jersey’s Millville Program Center seeking help to obtain employment out in the community. She learned janitorial skills and advanced quickly through the program. Eventually, McDonald’s saw what a hard worker she was and hired her. However, this was only the first step towards her final goal. After working with Easterseals, she discovered her true calling. Adrien wanted to become a skills coach so she could help others to get a job, just as her job coach has helped her. We are happy to report that in September 2016, Adrien was welcomed as a staff member at the very site where she was trained. She is so proud of her accomplishment and so are we. She tells us that, “I’ve found my dream job.” And we couldn’t be happier for her. Her hard work has paid off and she now serves as a living example of how setting goals and achieving them is the clearest path to happiness!
