A Buffalo, NY woman talks of her pride in going to work every day. It's simple if you remember three things . . .

Maura Kelley, a working woman from the Buffalo, NY area, has written a wonderful piece in the Buffalo News about her pride in overcoming serious mental illness.  Today, she works daily for an area employer, owns a home, and supports a beloved greyhound.   

Working despite the fact that you have a mental illness – or volunteering if that’s better for you – need not be a difficult experience, says Kelley. She identifies three key rules that every employee ought to follow.   Keeping the basics in mind has not only won her promotions, but helped to transform her life.

A terrific piece … give it a read!
