Marcie Shaver's Story
"It's broadened my perspective of what I can do."
Featuring: Marcie Shaver
Marcie – My name is Marcie Shaver. I’m from Boise, Idaho, and I’m a single mom. I got fired from my job, and I didn’t know what I was going to do. And I kept looking and I couldn’t find anything, so I came to DI. And the very first day I was there, I got my résumé fixed up, and then I started working in the production line. And it’s just amazing how it’s broadened my perspective of what I could do. It’s almost like somebody put on another pair of glasses for me and I’m seeing things in a different perspective. I’m seeing that there are limitless things that I can do with my life, with my time, with people.
And then I left and got my own job in real estate. I have a huge smile on my face every day. I’m excited about what I’m doing and what I’m thinking about. It’s awesome.
I’m grateful for the program. I just know that it makes a big difference. Like, I’ve told a couple of people that even wanted to start working at the DI how much better it is to have them guide and direct you to get out there to find jobs. And it’s great. It’s just like the best thing that could ever happen to me.
