Congratulations to Job Coach Joey Oakwood and jobseeker Angela Kenney for being featured in this month's Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities newsletter. OOD says,

IKRON’s Joey Oakwood provided job coaching to Kenney. She gained communication skills and became independent at her job. “I had the pleasure of supporting Angela as she started her new role at Mercy Health,” said Oakwood. “Through her determination and self-sufficiency, she has done a great job adjusting to her new position, meeting employer standards, and transitioning to natural supports within her work environment.”

 

As a patient ambassador, Kenney visits patient rooms and takes meal orders on her iPad. “I feel great,” Kenney said. “I was really happy when I got the job, and I couldn’t wait to tell my parents.”
