Naomi Shapiro

Now living in the Springfield area, I worked for over 38 years for NJ Department of Labor as an Employment Specialist/Counselor/Supervisor. I gave job search/life skills workshops and assisted people to crystalize their career goals. In addition, I trained people to develop their own jobs, to do successful job interviewing as well as to write a good resume. I retired in March 2006 and then worked for over a year and a half as a Supported Employment Counsleor/Job Coach for people who survived traumatic brain injuries. I've been a singles rap group facilitator for over 17 years. I've been a chamber and orchestral musician cellist for over 40 years and have taught adults and children to play. I enjoy hiking with both a hiking club and with friends for "bootleg hikes". I've successfully kept 50 pounds off for over 30 years and have successfully coached friends and relatives to "eat healthier" and lose or maintain their weight as recommended by their physicians.
