Before I had the surgeries on my left, and right ankles, I had the physical means, and abilities to do any kind of physical work. Yes, I have always been challenged, however I do not let my challenges, or disabilities hold me back from working, and performing to a job.Before February 15th, 2015, I had the physical means, and abilities to do jobs that were physically demanding, and requiring the abilities of your body, stretching, reaching, bending, sitting, kneeling, carrying, lifting, climbing, pulling, pushing, and etc. I am a very hard, and focus worker. I am positive, compassionate, helpful, polite, respectful, mannered, knowledgeable, detailed, and focused to perform duties of the job correctly with details. After going through the second surgery for my right ankle, my physical abilities of doing heavy physical work has changed considerably. I can still work, but any job that I get now has to have the means of allowing me to sit down. I can walk with the assistant of using a walking cane. My physical abilities now are limited due to restrictions from my doctor. I can be on my feet for a limited time, I can't lift over 15lbs, no pushing, pulling, or climbing, example, ladders. I can probably push something that would allow me to hold on while walking, however it probably could not be heavy. I love working, being busy, being active, like the opportunities of learning. Cannot work fulltime, and I do not drive. Must be a part time job to supplement with my disability. I have the experience of being supportive by a job coach.

I started volunteering at the Williamsburg Community Chapel Welcome Center on August 11th, 2019. Basically what I do at the Welcome Center is greet, and welcome people that have attended the Williamsburg Community Chapel church service, and that would be interested in attending, and becoming a future church member to the Williamsburg Community Chapel. I do the welcome center on the second, and last Sunday of each month.
