Denise Brown - Employment Services Specialist, Beckley Office

As the Employment Services Specialist in our Beckley office, I am responsible for employment services including, navigating consumers through the job search process. I offer support to both job seekers and employers in community-based competitive jobs. It is also my responsibility to maintain relationships with the WV Department of Rehabilitation Services District office staff and other potential consumers.

Mountain State Centers for Independent Living provides vocational assessments in basic life skills and work readiness trainings in a classroom sitting. We also offer work site support to ensure job retention. These assessments are provided in our two employment counties, Raleigh and Fayette.

Consumer services are flexible to ensure the support provided reflects consumer directed services with an emphasis on full community integration. I visit potential work sites to observe and perform jobs to learn responsibilities for a given position prior to a consumer’s placement.

It is my priviledge to help people with disabilities improve their lives to be able to live more independently. I have worked with individuals that have disabilities for the past 10 years. I am the mother of three children and the grandmother of five.

If you are interested in receiving any employment services that we offer, or if you are an employer interested in scheduling a presentation of our services, please give me a call.

You can reach me in the Beckley office at 304-255-0122 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Monday through Friday, or email at
