I’m a payroll manager for a nonprofit. Getting to work was very difficult, so I lost my job. I was an estimator, construction estimator, which was not a thing that—I could probably still go back and do it—I didn’t make that effort to go back to it because I was still in a little shock and full of depression. But when I finally got out of it, I started volunteering at a bunch of different places. I had volunteered at the Humane Society here in Atlanta prior to my injury, so I went back and they made an office position for me so I could still be around the animals. Started doing that, looking for work, and then I always enjoyed human resources, and I started doing human resources with a nonprofit here in Atlanta called “Points of Light.” And they liked my work product so much that they offered me a fulltime position doing payroll. So, it’s kind of how I got in to being a payroll manager.
