What is your name, title, and role with Work Without Limits?
Michelle Nowers, Director of Operations and Communications
How long have you held this position?
I’ve been with Work Without Limits since its inception – so for over 10 years! I started as an administrative assistant and have moved up within the organization.
What is the best part of your job?
Witnessing the successes of the work that we do. Over the years, I have had the pleasure of watching Work Without Limits grow and hearing the success stories and seeing the results, brings me so much joy.
Do you have any special skills, interests or hobbies?
My hobbies mostly include a lot of the work I do every day here at Work Without Limits! I love creating websites and developing creative collateral materials. I find I do a lot of that in my spare time and I love to see the end results. Other interests and hobbies include traveling, which I love to do (specifically to Walt Disney World) and spending time with friends and family.
What is your best advice for job seekers?
Remain positive throughout the process. The job seeking process is stressful and takes a lot of time, but in the end it will be rewarding. Some of your most important relationships that you will build will be those of your colleagues. Remain positive and don’t give up; you will get there!
What is your best advice for employers seeking a more inclusive and/or diverse workforce?
The journey to an inclusive workforce should never truly end. As your company begins to expand the workforce to include individuals with disabilities, there will always be room for education and improvement. Work with your company to ensure that all staff, not just leadership and managers, are educated on the importance of individuals with disabilities in the workplace.
What is your favorite place in the world?
Hmmm…this is a tough question. I suppose it wouldn’t be right if I didn’t say Walt Disney World because to me it is truly a place that brings me happiness and joy.
