NDEAM Spotlight: Meet Dana, an advocate for people with disabilities

Reading time: 2 Minutes

Key Takeaways: National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) has inspired Galt to share the story of Dana Ayers, an empathetic and dedicated Galt staff member who found purpose after a tragic loss.

 


 

In celebration of National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) this October, Galt Foundation is proud to share the story of Dana Ayers, a Galt staff member who lives out our mission to provide, promote, and expand employment opportunities for people with disabilities.

 

Seeking Purpose in a Time of Loss

 

Dana Ayers has always been willing to be an advocate for others. As an empathetic “people person” with a charismatic personality, she first began helping others at a young age.

 

However, after the devastating loss of her son, Dana felt truly lost. She began experiencing anxiety and depression, which would become debilitating at times. It was after this tragedy that she also experienced unemployment, compounding stress on her existing condition.

 

Throughout these difficult circumstances, Dana sought help and guidance, but she struggled to feel as though she was living out her purpose.

 

Finding Direction with Galt

 

Eventually, Dana came across Galt Foundation and found the support she needed to build back her confidence. Following her prescreening and assessments, Dana was able to regain some of her self-assurance, which empowered her throughout her employment journey.

 

After her final interview, Dana got a job with Galt and has been serving people with disabilities ever since.

 

Advocating for Others

 

As one of Galt’s Talent Acquisition Consultants, Dana has placed hundreds of job seekers with stories like hers and advocates for people with disabilities on a daily basis. Her lively spirit and enthusiasm inspire others to feel encouraged and uplifted.

 

Dana is a vital part of the Galt Foundation team and enjoys making a difference in the lives of others every single day.

As an alternative staffing agency for persons with disabilities, Galt is proud to recognize and express our appreciation for staff members like Dana who live out our mission not only during National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) in October, but all year long.
