Toby-Fisher

Aloha,

My name is Toby Fisher and I had the pleasure of working with Laurie Hamano and her professional staff. With their help through vocational rehabilitation I have gotten a great job and a career.

Laurie and her staff have helped me learn computer skills, typing, management skills, as well as professionalism. With their help I have become manager overseeing forty employees. manage and do marketing for one of the largest water sports companies in the islands. Laurie's business has helped me change my life around and taught me valuable skills that I use daily. After having back surgery and.completing her vocational rehabilitation services, I've accomplished more than I ever thought I could. I now work 40-50 hr. work weeks and surf, paddle canoe, hike, cook, and live healthyand productive lifestyle.

am very grateful for her services.

Mahalo,
