Megan Jones has several impediments to employment having been diagnosed with autism, an anxiety disorder, atrial flutter, ankle reconstruction, and a seizure disorder. Megan applied to Vocational Rehabilitation to receive assistance with obtaining and maintaining a job that would not require her to perform the prolonged standing & walking that had been required in her previous jobs. At the time Megan applied, she was working at Sprouts Grocery Store. Megan needed a more sedentary job to coincide with her functional limitations.

Vocational Rehabilitation delivered what Megan came for. In order to evaluate her clerical work strengths and weaknesses, Megan participated in a Clerical Work Assessment at Opportunity Village. When she was getting ready to exit this assessment, Crystal Kamber, her rehabilitation counselor was notified that Opportunity Village wanted to extend Megan’s assessment a few more weeks so they could assess if they wanted to hire her. Crystal approved this additional time in the assessment for further evaluation.

As a result of the additional evaluation time, Megan was able to prove her professionalism and ability to work at a productive rate. On 2/10/20, Opportunity Village hired Megan to work as a Prep Specialist, having the clerical duties of getting documents prepared for scanning. She was such great worker that her supervisor asked her to assist her co-workers with quality control, assisting them to work error-free. Megan enjoys assisting her co-workers in doing their jobs correctly.

On 3/19/20, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Megan was placed on Paid Time Off along with her Co-workers to minimize the spread of this Virus. On 5/18/20 her employer asked her to come back and she has continued to enjoy her job, utilizing personal protective equipment and personal safety training ever since.
