Best Buddies Job Success at Dana Farber!

By Dana Lyford
Best Buddies Massachusetts

Corey Smith has been working with the Best Buddies Jobs program since December of 2010 and was hired shortly after by Bobs Discount Furniture as a Caf Associate.

At Bobs, Corey developed a great foundation of skills needed to pursue her greater goal of working full-time in a hospital food services environment. After a year of working at Bobs, Corey applied for a job with Sodexo at Dana Farber Cancer Institute and she was hired!

In this busy cafeteria in the Longwood Medical area, Corey is constantly restocking the condiment, utensil, and napkin area. Most importantly, shes also providing a positive experience to customers and clients of Dana Farber.

Corey has been working part-time at Dana Farber for a little over a month. Her co-workers cant say enough about how hard she works and what a pleasure she is to be around. She hopes to keep that momentum going in order to be brought on full-time in the near future.

Janna Rayworth, Coreys Employment Consultant, said her favorite part about being with Corey during her training at Dana Farber was watching two other Best Buddies Jobs participants train her to do her work. It meant a lot to be able to witness a full circle of inclusion.

Outside of work, Corey is a proud mom and loves providing him with the best support that she can. Whenever her son is mentioned, Coreys face lights up, and you can tell how much being a mother means to her. Corey is an extremely motivated individual who truly embodies the mission and spirit of the Best Buddies Jobs program.
