Jeffery - Employed at a Horse Training Ranch

Jeffery.jpg

Jeffery is a very friendly and approachable person who has struggled with mental and physical disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy and Cardiac Dysarhythmia.  Before Jeff made his move to Vernal he lived with his grandparents until they passed away and then in a nursing home. When Jeff arrived in Vernal his goal was to get a job. He spent many hours walking up and down the streets asking for employment.  After several months of searching for employment with no success, Jeff turned to Vocational Rehabilitation for help.  With the support and help of his VR counselor LaNae and his Innovative Harbor Job Coach Dee they were able to find an employment opportunity at a horse training ranch. It is a perfect fit because of his love of the outdoors and animals.  Jeff LOVES his job and looks forward to going to work each week.  His employer says he is doing a great job and is a hard worker, for example Jeff picks the hardest stalls to clean and works with a smile on his face.

Thank you so much to LaNae at the Vernal VR office and Dee our Employment Specialist in Vernal.
