I work stacking boxes, putting labels on bottles. I’ve been working at Ability Counts for sixteen years.
On the weekends, I go out with my girlfriend to the mall, the park, the movies, or to anywhere really.
I like to watch action movies, horror movies, and comedies. I also like to watch sports and wrestling, also Los Angeles Clippers, Two & a Half Men, and That 70’s Show. I like to go swimming, going to the beach and spending time with my friends. I like to play pool and basketball. I like to walk around the mall and buy things like clothes or shoes.
I also like to workout doing pushups every day. And also go hiking in the mountains. I like to go watching animals at night with infrared night vision goggles.
My favorite books to read are astronomy books. I also like to help my mom and dad with shopping, helping pay the bills and doing household chores like mowing the lawn and washing the car.
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.
