Spotlight on Gloria Gonzales

Gloria Gonzales

Hello ACI!

I am very happy working and providing my professional assistance to my clients. I am a very active individual who loves to dance. I am currently dancing for a professional dance company and enjoy every minute.

My life consists of dancing and taking care of my family. My 27 years of marriage has taught me so much about life, but over all, I’m happy and love to care for special needs individuals.

I love myself and love my life.

Hey, my name is Leticia Gutierrez.

I’m the job coach for the janitorial crew at Geodis Fontana. I’ve been working here for about four and a half years, going on five. I’m a major Sylvester Stallone fan. On the weekends, of course if there’s not a movie that’s out, I am out with my family going to amusement parks, festivals, anything that keeps us out and about. Just recently, we went to Legoland. We checked out their amusement park, waterpark, and the aquarium. It’s mainly for the babies.

I have quite a handful of kids. I have six girls. The oldest one is almost 21. I have a 16, 14, 11, 6, and the baby is now four years old. At their ages, you know they have the attitudes and talking back.

There is a restaurant that is called Luna in Corona and in Rancho Cucamonga, They have what they call a tequila dinner that’s once a month. It’s a three course meal, with three shots of tequila and three mixed drinks, and every month is a different kind of tequila that they are promoting. I like to go almost every month because the price is $45, but it’s worth the meal. It’s so fancy in there and the drinks are excellent. It’s usually the last Thursday of the month.

I love my job, I love the people I work with, and my consumers. We also want to give a shout out to Letty Gutierrez for going above and beyond once again!

She procured a donation from Geodis of 10 almost new office chairs for Ability Counts. She is always looking for ways to help the consumers and staff by bringing in donations of furniture or bringing in new contracts!

Way to go Letty! Your efforts are much appreciated!

Spotlight On: Mary Austin

Mary Austin

My name is Mary Austin. I have three children; Michael 42, Jovonna 39, and Stacey 29. I grew up in Bridgeport, CT. I then moved to Anaheim, CA., in 1981, where I worked for a law firm in Tustin for several years.

In 1996, I moved to Atlanta, GA and landed a job in the finance department of a major corporation. I remained in the finance industry for several years. I loved living in Georgia. I worked part-time at Stacey’s school as a computer teacher for Pre-Kindergarten. Also, I landed a job on the weekend as a Leasing Agent at my current resident.

In 2000, I moved to Jamaica Queens, New York. I was offered a promotion to work with the Credit and Collections Manager. In New York, I attended plays, restaurants, and children’s events. In 2001, I moved back to my hometown and commuted by train to New York. I really enjoyed taking my mother shopping and talking to my father.

By 2012, I lost both of my parents and decided to move back to beautiful California. Currently, I’m raising my grandkids; Hayleigh 5 and Chase 3. I love taking them to the library, movies, social events, and I make education their priority.

In 2017, I earned my MBA with a concentration in Human Resources. Even though I am serving in
a different field, I truly enjoy working at Ability Counts. Tiana makes sure I’m learning the industry and making an impact on the job as well as my personal growth.

I look forward to my future in California.
