When I first started at Willis I was a shy, self-conscious girl… but Willis changed all that! My time at Willis was knowledgeable, fun and most importantly self-rewarding. The PSW program was amazing. I learned so much. All of the staff is absolutely awesome; they looked at you as a person and not just a number filling up a seat. Rachel Goyer Personal Support Worker
