Customized Employment – Success Snapshot
Jada is passionate about building confidence in the people around her. She is creative, energetic and loves to help people feel their best. Through the Customized Employment program offered by EmployAbilities in North Central Alberta, Jada took an eyelash extension course, purchased equipment and successfully started her own business.
Customized self-employment has allowed Jada to work and care for her unique needs. She can sit down on the job and limit physical exertion while managing hip and spinal injuries. Her in-home studio also enables her to be with her son while growing her business and balancing life as a single parent.
- Jada provides eyelash extensions and sells products such as oil-free mascaras and lash cleansers.
- Jada has great rapport with many local entrepreneurs and has secured a partnership with a boudoir photographer who offers lash extensions prior to photo sessions so clients can look and feel their best.
- Jada is thrilled to be able to do what she has always wanted to do, “It’s a dream come true”.
