Denise

Denise is a Los Angeles native with a professional background in janitorial services.  She was referred to Would Works by the employment specialists at Chrysalis  who are helping her find more permanent stable employment.  

She came to Would works with the goal of paying off a debt of past due rent, so she can keep her housing while looking for work and supporting her son.  

Denise is a pleasure to work with, and quickly became our go-to orbital sander operator.  With a keen eye for detail and excellent hand skills, she cranked out cutting boards and step stools like a pro and made everyone smile all the while.
