Akisha Greene-Jefferson is an extraordinary Career Resource Specialist and business developer on the Prince George’s County, Virginia, and Washington D.C. (PG/VA/DC) Team.  Akisha is always resilient and persistent, and all the while she maintains a positive attitude despite the challenges she encounters while placing individuals with disabilities into jobs.  Since her first year of employment with Work Opportunities, she has managed to consistently be on the “Top 10 Career Resource Specialists with Placements” list, having finished in second place last year and third this year with 46 job placements!

The Prince George’s market has recently expanded and is now providing services in Virginia.  Akisha has been instrumental in our ability to serve northern Virginia.  She was asked to take the lead with referrals and placement development for the Fairfax and Alexandria Department of Aging and Rehabilitative Services (DARS) offices.   Akisha took on the challenge with enthusiasm and due to her efforts we have successfully placed many individual clients into new jobs!

Akisha is always networking and her passion for the job is infectious, resulting in not only referrals and placements, but also a highly motivated team.  Congratulations Akisha!
