National Disability Employment Awareness Month: Introducing Megan!
October 19, 2018 | In: Autism Resources , Events
The next person we’d like to introduce in honor of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, is Megan from We Rock the Spectrum – Severna Park!
Megan has been working at We Rock the Spectrum – Severna Park for about 2 years now! Megan is extremely good at her job! Her customers always appreciate the effort Megan puts in while at the gym.
A typical day of work for Megan consists of her cleaning and organizing the gym. She loves assisting children on the equipment! She also takes care of administrative tasks such as filing, inventory and laminating. Her gym usually has a checklist ready for her which helps Megan know what to expect and work independently on her tasks!
Throughout the time Megan has worked at the gym, she has gained confidence in her ability to work independently in the workplace! Megan loves to interact with customers (especially babies), by far it’s her favorite thing to do while working at the gym. She enjoys catching up with her coworkers.
At the end of Megan’s shift, her checklist is copied, and a note is attached for her to share at home. Megan loves iced coffee, We Rock the Spectrum – Severna Park utilizes a check system. Once Megan earns enough checks, she earns a complimentary iced coffee for her hard work! This is always an exciting moment as it gives Megan a visual on her progress each day! Whether the gym is packed or things are quiet, Megan works hard at getting everything on her list complete. Its clear that she takes her job very seriously.
“Megan receives endless amounts of compliments on her work ethic. It is so awesome to hear and see it all. I love watching her becoming more independent!” – Courtney Cahill, Owner of We Rock the Spectrum – Severna Park.
Fun Fact: Megan has won 3-4 medals in the Special Olympics in the time that she has been working at the gym!
