Nancy

DAC staff describe Nancy as an “eager worker.”

Nancy does the interior cleaning in the Car Detailing Department and her supervisor, Dave, calls her a “meticulous inside cleaner.” Nancy loves her detailing work because “customers are so happy when they see their cars clean.”

Nancy also works on the paper route and in the workshop shredding confidential documents.  She especially likes the paper route because she enjoys seeing friends along the way.  Susan, who supervises the paper route, says that Nancy really “wants to work.”

When they used to do a larger route, “Nancy would organize all the labels by address.” Nancy says that Susan has “helped me to be more independent. She is patient and kind.”  “So is Kvatum,” says Nancy, referring to the former DAC Executive Director, who recently retired in December, 2014.

Nancy attributes the DAC staff with “helping me to learn new skills.”  DAC staff “guide and help me,” Nancy says.  “I call them if I have a problem or a question.”

Nancy has made several friends at the DAC.  One special friend, Michael, shares her love of the Minnesota Twins and they “get together and watch the Twins’ games on the weekend.”

Nancy actively volunteers at her church, and enjoys going to the dinner theatre with DAC friends and staff.  Nancy also likes to bowl during her time off from work.
