In her vocational consulting career, Amberly worked as a job developer for the Oregon Office of Vocational Rehabilitation Services. She was a business developer for the Oregon Commission for the Blind, and a consultant for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. She was also a social security disability representative who advised presiding judges on claimants’ ability to work. Her contract work spans 18 years during which time she developed exceptional workforce development skills.
According to Amberly, the career consultant position is perfect for her. She said, “it is a privilege to serve our community and I love helping customers achieve their educational and employment goals.” Daphnie Ivie (see above article) is but one of the customers Amberly has assisted in the few months she has worked with SCBEC.
Amberly is very excited about her work with SCBEC. She feels supported and valued and gives honor and thanks to her program manager, Josh Hendrickson, for his outstanding management, to WWP and the SCBEC Board, for their support and guidance, and to OED for fostering a wonderful partnership.
WWP is pleased to have such a skilled and dedicated SCBEC staff member working at WorkSource Yamhill. Thank you, Amberly, for all you do for our participants!
