"Thank you Vocational Connections. I challenged Cory Turner to get me into a gunsmith retraining program. Cory informed me that just maybe we can do this and assigned an intern to my case. The team worked very hard to find me a program. Cory and Amanda got the approval from L&I and were with me every step of the way, helped me to keep on pace, and helped me anytime I was having difficulties. Both Cory and Amanda were respectful and professional. I dare to say that I might not have made it through the program without Amanda’s help and encouragement. Nicolle at the Spokane office was very helpful also. I have great respect and appreciation for your organization, I feel like this was a group effort, virtually every person there was involved in some way. I think of the girls there as the V.C. Angels. Its with sadness I have to say goodbye. I had a great experience, and have successfully completed my retraining plan. My dream has become reality. I am so thankful to Cory and Amanda, so to honor them I have named my business G.C.A. Gunsmithing: G for Greg, C for Cory, and A for Amanda. I will always remember their contribution to fulfilling my dream to become a gunsmith. THANK YOU,
SINCERELY, G.C.A.Gunsmithing Gregory Chute

"I’d like to give a quick shout out to Vocational Connections, Inc. They have assisted our farming business in the step-by-step process of getting a couple of our employees that were injured on the job back into the work force from light-duty work to full time work. They’ve connected with our farming business, the prescribing doctors and the injured employees on a regular basis and kept everyone in the loop. This assistance is truly genuine to us! Not only do we get a healthy employee back to work but the employee is given the satisfaction of being back in the work force as well, it’s a double win situation! Many thanks to my most recent work with Cherie Smith, M.Ed., CRC #236817, her communication and efforts were extremely timely and always on point!
