Sorry I haven’t posted in some time, I got the job I was waiting for!  So I have been getting acquainted with my new position and it is a day full.  That’s why they call it full-time!

I am now the Peer Support Specialist at Access to Independence in San Diego.  I am primarily working with people who have sustained brain and spinal chord injuries.

I am starting a mentoring program which is cross-disability.  So I match people up that have the same or similar disabilities; one has been down the road with the disability with someone who has more newly acquired the injury or disability.  Mentors use their disabling experience to help guide another person who is walking a similar path.
