I worked one on one with disabled Veterans to help them obtain and maintain suitable, stable and gainful employment and had a 98% success rate.  The St. Petersburg Regional Office is one of the largest in the nation, serving 7,500 Veterans annually. I provided all services and assistance necessary to enable entitled Veterans with service-connected disabilities to obtain and maintain suitable, stable and gainful employment and, if not employable, achieve independence in daily living to the maximum extent feasible.

I understand the importance of ordering, evaluating, and interpreting Functional Capacity Evaluations, medical records, and learning disability testing to guide clients towards creating feasible goals to achieve suitable, stable, and gainful employment.

I provide job readiness training to include interviewing skills, resume writing, communication skills, job seeking skills and appropriate work habits.
