"In my role as a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor with DHS-Division of Rehabilitation Services I had the pleasure of working closely with Lyndsay Shelton for several years to provide pre-employment transition services to youth age 14 to 22.
Lyndsay’s expertise in collaborating with agencies was instrumental in establishing a transition contract with DRS. This contract assisted Lyndsay in providing over 400 students with job exploration counseling, work-based learning experiences, counseling on postsecondary education programs, workplace readiness training, and instruction in self advocacy. Her services were vital in helping young adults to plan for their future and realize their goals in employment, recreation, and daily life."
