Ms. Mosby’s passion is helping individuals who want to work, find employment. She realized that while working is only one aspect of who we are and what we do, it was an essential part of our lives. In 1994, she lost her eyesight to a virus. Doctors were never able to determine what caused the virus to attack the optic nerves, but today she is considered legally blind. While some might think that her life was over, it was just the opposite; it was then that life began for her. She now wonders why it took a potential life-changing event like losing her sight to make her stop and appreciate life.

After training with the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR), Ms. Mosby obtained the skills and confidence to attend college and live independently. She earned her BA in Human Services from the Metropolitan State University of Denver and a Master’s Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling from New York University. She started Mosby Employment Services in 2004, a company that provides career counseling, job readiness skills, training, and job placement. Mosby Employment Services has established an environment where individuals can create a confident presentation of their talents and skills to compete successfully in the job market.

She has been the recipient of several awards including the Martin Luther King Peace Award from Metropolitan State University; the Woman of the Year from the Institute for Women’s Studies and Services; and the Giraffe Award (for sticking her neck out for others) from Metropolitan State University. She has served as the chair of the State Rehabilitation Council appointed by the Governor of Colorado and has also served as the commissioner on the Commission for People with Disabilities for the City of Denver.
