Hi, my name is Alma Reyna. I’ve been working for Ability Counts since August 2010. I work out of the Corona facility and have been with Open Door Packaging in Chino since May 2011. Oh, and I can’t forget to tell you that I have a part time job since 2015. Ok, enough with the work stuff.
Let me tell you a little something about my life and what I enjoy doing in my spare time. I have an amazing boyfriend (Luis) and have 3 beautiful daughters Briana –16, Iiana –13, Jayleen –12! (I know all girls yikes!). Oh and a pitbull named Bruno; can’t forget my dog haha…
I love spending time with my family, going out and riding our go-cart. We also go to Laughlin every year. We love taking our boat on the river during the summer time. We just enjoy doing a lot of outdoor activities.
I love my Philadelphia Eagles woot woot! I also love any type of movies, music, I love to dance and sing to anything! Oh, and I also love some Modelos (beer) and some good Tequila yumm! I can’t complain about my life. I gotta say, I sure do live it to the fullest!
On December 18th, Staff Member, Alma Reyna and her crew were treated to the movies with popcorn and snacks at Edwards Theater by the Manager of the Open Door Project. They watched Star Wars: The Last Jedi, then were taken to the BJ’s Brewhouse restaurant for brunch.
We want to thank Alma Reyna and her team for doing an amazing job at decorating the cafeteria for the 4th of July and the upcoming dance. It looks really amazing and festive! And a special thanks to her consumer, Andrew Kim.
ACI: How long have you been with Ability Counts? Alma Reyna: I started working for Ability Counts on November 2009 but got hired through the company on August 2010 so I would say going on 8 years.
ACI: What got you interested in this field of work? Alma Reyna: Well my Mothers brother had Epilepsy and I remember as a child I was terrified of him. So when a high school friend mentioned to me about the job I thought it would be nice to work with them since I never had that bond with my uncle, having passed years ago.
ACI: What’s it like working with people that have disabilities? Alma Reyna: Working with people with disabilities is definitely rewarding and fun. It can get challenging at times but I LOVE IT! Just seeing how kind-hearted and smart they are makes me love my job even more. I’ve learned a lot from them as well.
ACI: What are your hobbies and things to do outside of work? Alma Reyna: My hobbies are dancing, listening to music, watching movies, cooking, going on family outings, riding our boat and riding our dune buggy. Most importantly spending time with my daughter and family!
