Tyler has worked at the Davenport Hotel in their laundry department since 2009. Tyler is an awesome young man with a strong passion for music and sports. Tyler works with our newest Employment Consultant Mike Glenn, and had worked with Ty Lingo for 7 years.
Mike explains that Tyler is very popular downtown, and that shows within the Davenport, as well as when he goes to the bus plaza after work to get home. Tyler always has a smile on his face and loves to give people high fives and fist bumps. Tyler’s coworkers love to have him around, and he never forgets a name. It is amazing the type of memory Tyler has, he can remember just about anything that is told to him. Tyler is always the one making new friends, and engaging in conversation.Fun fact: Mike says Tyler keeps up with every NFL team in the league, and they talk a lot of football when they’re working together. Tyler’s favorite team is the Denver Broncos… But we don’t hold that against him

Tom Shanks has been with Ability Employment Services since the beginning, and has been employed with DSHS for ten years. One of his most notable work accomplishments, shared by his Employment Consultant Cameron Stewart, has been improving in his workplace independence. When Tom first started working with Ability our staff provided coaching and guidance through the duration of his shifts, and in just a short year, the time Tom has needed our staffs' guidance has been reduced by nearly half! With Cameron’s constant supervision, Tom has proved to have grown, not only in the workplace, but in his self-reliance.
Fun fact: Cameron calls Tom an “Encyclopedia of sports facts” and mentioned that he’s a “huge jokester.”
