I began my career with COF Training Services on October 26, 1987. I have spent my entire 25 years as part of the day service program. Many of the consumers that I work with today were here when I started my career and helped me to get through the beginning stages. I have seen many changes and I've seen many people come and go. I've had to work through the loss of some of our consumers. COF has been a great place to work and to quote a line from a song, "If I had it all to do over again," I'd do it with COF Training Services.
