MEET THE TEAM

Laurie Gallo, M.A.
Founder & Director
laurie@capcityinc.org

I have over 20 years of experience working with clients who have disabilities.  As a vocational rehabilitation counselor, I have helped these client's live fuller, more independent lives by assisting them with completing their education goals after a work related injury.  By assessing the client’s capabilities and limitations, I work with them to set goals for employment along with arranging the necessary training to meet those goals. I facilitate their job training, assisting them in the job applications process and in securing gainful employment. I have served clients coping with physical disabilities and injuries, mental illness, psychological disorders and substance abuse problems. The goal is to concentrate on their education and employment background, take their work injury into consideration, and then design and implement a training program so that the client can obtain competitive employment.

a n t h o n y @ c a p c i t y i n c .o r g

I have been working with Capital City Career Opportunities, Inc. since 2017 as an Intake Specialist/Office Manager. My objective is to help people discover and unlock their potential by evaluating their goals and guiding them to create a plan that will provide the knowledge they need to gain meaningful employment. I assist them with the beginning steps of employment preparation, such as narrowing down job goals, evaluating their resumes and cover letters, and providing feedback on their interviewing skills to help ensure they are fully prepared to start their search for a job.

In 2021, I attended Cornell University’s Institute of Employment & Disability where I completed a graduate certificate and was granted a full credential as a Work Incentives Practitioner (WIP).  As the Work Incentives Practitioner (WIP) for Capital City Career Opportunities, Inc., I assist consumers who are SSI/SSDI beneficiaries to make informed choices regarding the impact of employment on public benefits including cash and health benefits, available work incentives, and reporting of wages and work incentives usage.

As the Intake Coordinator with Capital City Careers, my role is to work closely with consumers and assist them in the first step of the process, their Intake Interview. During the Interview process, information is taken that is vital for the process to proceed. Although it is just the first step, it is an important phase in which the Intake Coordinator acquires the necessary information to pass along to the Job Developer or Employment Specialist.
