“The Highlands Ability Battery and Missy’s guidance have been invaluable assets to me.  The Battery helped me to consider career paths based on my abilities Rather than current skills.  During my sessions with Missy, we refer to the results of the battery, develop action plans and discuss outcomes. This has helped me maintain focus.  Additionally, Missy’s optimistic attitude has helped me avoid negativity traps and to keep striving.” - Dan C.
