In the Spotlight… Kari Kidow and Velia G.

Spotlight On…

Kari Kildow is an employment specialist in our Southfield location. Recently we received a note from Velia G., a person that Kari helped to secure a job. Velia has been coming to Easter Seals Michigan for two years. A large part of the Easter Seals Michigan mission is to give each individual we serve the necessary tools that they need to live the lives they deserve. In order to accomplish this we make a variety of resources, including employment specialists, available for their use. Here is what Velia said about Kari:

“Kari Kildow was the catalyst that helped me care about my life again. I cannot say enough about how happy I am for her role and support in my life. She wasn’t just another case worker; she was my mentor and my friend. She cared about me and I could feel her support in my life.”

Velia recently obtained a job and is currently working towards a degree in Occupational Therapy at Wayne State University.

Congratulations to Kari and Velia!
