Posted this on the DSSHE as well. Thanks for any connections.

My former student worker, Amber Cruz has relocated to Reston, Virginia upon graduation and is looking for work. She was with me for over 2 years.

I cannot recommend her highly enough. Her excellent work ethic and attention to detail is unsurpassed. She was willing to go the extra mile whenever we needed after hours help. She was compassionate with our students and yet was able to attend to all her editing tasks. She is an expert using ABBYY to convert textbooks to an accessible format and also helped with research finding books on learning ally, book share, and access text network. She contacted publishers as well and located hard to find books on several occasions. Along with the usual workload, she used her artistic talents to create marketing tools and helped with our open house events. She is quiet, creative, organized and mature beyond her years.

I was so sorry to lose her. But they do graduate and leave us as we all know. If anyone has information about a job including alternate media conversion or similar detail-oriented work, please let me know and I will pass it on to her. She is a real gem of an employee and I hate to see her talents lost from the disability community.
