Consumer Highlight: Jillian Darwin

Hi my name is Jillian Darwin. I’ve been employed by Ability Counts since 2012. My favorite thing to do is scrapbooking, watch movies, shopping, and cooking.

My scrap-booking is very, very good. I scrapbook pictures of vacations, pictures of family. When you scrapbook, you take a sheet of paper, you get glue or glue dots and you put it on the back of the photo you want to use. Then you stick it onto the paper and you decorate them with stickers, glitter, and markers. It’s very simple.
I like to make them with my friends.

I’ve been out to Texas, and in the past, when I was five, I went to Hawaii. My sister goes to Cal State San Bernardino. She’s going to graduate, hopefully. I have a brother too. He lives in Redlands and goes to University of Redlands. He wants to be an accountant. My mom works at a dance store all the way in Fountain Valley.

I like to go to the movies with Chad and I’ve seen Winnie the Pooh, all the Star Wars movies up to Episode VII; I’ve seen the Marvel movies. There’s a whole lot, too many to name.

I also like to watch baseball, and my favorite team is the Dodgers. I haven’t been to the Dodger Stadium
yet though.

Spotlight On: Alma Reyna

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!
