I went to the Dan Marino 10-Month program from August 28, 2017, to my graduation on June 28, 2018. The program I chose to do was called the Microsoft Office Specialist track. I received my national certification in Microsoft Word, Excel, and Outlook. I lived with my life coach, Kris, in Miami, where I worked on independent living skills. I highly recommend the program! I also had a 6-Month internship at the Miami State Attorney’s Office. They even offered me a job when I graduated! But I made a decision to move back to Naples. I had several interviews at different places. I was euphoric when I received a job offer from the STARability Foundation, formerly known as FDD (Foundation for the Developmentally Disabled). I am currently an administrative assistant working part-time. My responsibilities include creating spreadsheets, inputting data, filing new files, updating the old logo and location for STARability into the computer, and shredding old files and documents. I love my job!
