Key Quotes by Mary & Kaylee

  • Mary: “When we first started the support call…Kaylee and I thought what we would be talking about would be health-related issues but I’d say the first six months were all employment related issues…. I’d say now we’re having more conversations about how do you safely reenter…and the job thing has totally flipped into a candidates’ market.”

  • Kaylee: “The EDRM is in 113 different countries… Can you believe that!”

  • Kaylee: “If you are interested in getting involved, We’d love to welcome you.”
