Monique Wollan joined us in the studio and talked about her journey from high school to college and the workplace. From one side of the Earth to the other, Monique traveled, lived and worked as a volunteer and an English teacher. After 10 years of being abroad Monique came to Minnesota and sought out State Services for the Blind as she wanted to get updated since technology had probably changed from a decade ago.
Monique found her present job by searching Indeed and is now happily employed, raising bees, landscaping her own backyard and reading non-fiction books on her Kindle Reader.
Join Jeff Thompson and Monique Wollan as she shares her story and her perspectives in this 30 minute interview.

State Services for the Blind of Minnesota
We offer tools and training for employment and for helping seniors remain independent and active. As Minnesota’s accessible reading source we also transcribe books and other materials into alternative formats, including audio and braille. We assist Minnesotans who are blind, DeafBlind, losing vision, or who have another disability that makes it difficult to read print.
I hope you find what you need here. We’ve also created a Tips for Using Our New Website page.
