Spotlight on Angela Venaas

Hello my name is Angela Venaas. I’ve been a job coach with Ability Counts for 6 years. On my off time, I spend time in the garden, or watching movies with my husband.

I have one niece and five nephews, all of which are involved in sports. I try to go to their games as much as possible before they grow up.

We live in a little historical house on almost an acre land with two large dogs & a cat. I always have some sort of project going. -Angela Venaas

Shout Out to Ingrid Hernandez

We would like to give coach Ingrid Hernandez a big SHOUT OUT, she recently transitioned from Supportive Employment to the WAP program. During this short time she has been very pro-active in identifying consumers behaviors and has also taken the initiative in some cases to come up with creative resolutions. Her “firm and fair” level of coaching is making consumers accountable for their inappropriate behavior at work but also challenging them to reach their potential and increase productivity.

Spotlight On: Jaimie Bonseigneur

ACI: How long have you been with Ability Counts?
Jaimie Bonseigneur: I’ve been working with Ability Counts for over 3 years now. But my cousin has been a consumer for ACI for 20 years, so I’ve been attending family functions here since I was a little girl. When I dropped my cousin off at ACI, I had asked if they were hiring and I applied. Since then Ability Counts has been my second home!

ACI: What’s it like working with people that have disabilities?
Jaimie Bonseigneur: Being a Job Coach is a very rewarding job. It still amazes me how unstoppable the consumers are when it comes to their work. They love to learn new things and to know when they are doing well and how they can do better. Working with them is defiantly the best experience I could ever have.

ACI: What are your hobbies and things to do outside of work?
Jaimie Bonseigneur: On weekends I love to hang out with my family and find new adventures to go on. We try to stay active and go to the park or on bike rides or even a trip to the mountains. When I’m not doing that you can
find me hanging out at home enjoying life with the people I love.
