Couldn’t Be Happier
I always wanted to help other people. I got my CNA license and started my career. I was very happy and things were going well until I was involved in an incident that got me a felony and ended that for me. When I started with AES, I had been looking for work but couldn’t find a job I liked or that paid me the kind of money I really needed. I never thought I would work as a care provider again, but AES found me a job as a chore provider. I loved it. Although the pay wasn’t that great, I was doing what I liked.
It lasted for a year until my client got sick and had to be hospitalized. I immediately went back to job searching with AES. Because of the felony, it wasn’t easy, but AES found me a job working as a kitchen assistant for Community Healing Center at the Gilmore site where they were willing to overlook my record and give me a chance. The pay is great and I feel like I’m doing my part to help people. They respect my abilities and I often work independently. I am very grateful to my Employment Specialist who was very determined to help me get what I wanted. He helped me in many other areas as well.
“I couldn’t be happier. Thank you, AES.”
