WIPA success story client Lauren

I would like to share this wonderful story about my client.  Because of the WIPA program, Lauren was so encouraged to pursue her career as an author.  She gave me permission to share this link to everyone who will be inspired by her story.  It is an interview she had with Maria Shriver during Today Show recently. I have not read her book yet, but she has shared her story with me since I met and served her a couple of years ago.  If she can succeed despite the disabilities and challenges she acquired and went through after her aneurysm…anyone can succeed as well!  It is a privilege for the WIPA staff to be given the opportunity to change lives within the disabled population and make a difference as part of the Verdugo Jobs Center through the WIPA program. – Nina Schultz
