Jenn’s internship is at Delilah’s Pet Shop, just two blocks from the CIP Bloomington Center. Four mornings a week she cleans the five puppy cages. She started working with her boss and a job coach cleaning the puppy cages, following prompts for each step–gradually she needed less prompts and became more time-efficient and self-directed.
She is working towards having more responsibilities around the store including cleaning the main store area, tending to the cat room, and stocking the store inventory. “It’s fun,” Jenn said, “but this is actually pretty hard work–it’s a real job.”
Jenn is a hard worker and loves spending time with the puppies. She is motivated and driven to become independent and is making great progress towards her goals!
