Minnesota Life College (MLC), located in Richfield, Minnesota, is a not-for-profit, vocational and life skills training program for young adults with learning differences and autism spectrum disorders.
Nina Jonson is a fairly recent but extremely vital member of the MLC staff. As our new Director of Enrollment and Outreach, she is now responsible for finding young adults who would benefit from learning Real Skills for Real Life™ at Minnesota Life College. A longtime contributor to the MLC mission, she was a great addition to our growing group of individuals dedicated to providing the best possible lives for the young adults who walk through our doors. I talked with Nina to learn about such things as her role at MLC in the past, her life experiences and so much more.
Julianne Raatikka, our Development and Operations Specialist, made a major transition between her previous job as a legal clerk in Michigan to her current job as an asset in helping young adults with learning differences lead a successful, independent life. That transition is a big reason she was named the Employee Spotlight for July 2015. Keep reading to learn why she is such a valuable addition to our ever-growing, ever-evolving team!
The Community Living Program spotlight for this month, Jeffrey Monzingo, is known for his sense of humor and his dedication to his job as a church custodian. I asked him some questions to learn more about his life is as a member of CLP.
