Shirley Brissette is the recipient of the ‘Individual Employment’ award at Lifeworks’ Fall Harvest Employment Award ceremony held last November. In 2017, Shirley advocated to train as a cashier while working as part of the maintenance crew at Wegmans. With hard work, training and dedication she accomplished her goal of becoming a cashier. Hardly ever missing a shift, Shirley was disappointed when the pandemic forced a reduction in work hours but she has since been called back to work and is thrilled! Shirley also works part-time as a filer at Republic Plumbing.

When not working, Shirley loves spending time with her cat and family at her Lifeworks residence. A Patriots fan, she also loves catching up with friends and going out to eat.
