#FacesOfAbilityFriday – Doug M.

This week on #FacesOfAbilityFriday we’re showcasing Doug M. Doug lives in one of our residential homes. Doug works at MRCI in Chaska, where he does a few different jobs, including assembling small building kits and sleeving cards. He is interested in retiring but would consider working at Byerly’s for a few hours each week if he was offered a job there.

Doug grew up in West St. Paul, where he lived with his parents and three siblings. He loves to travel, and has visited many different places, including Chicago, California, and New Orleans. Doug would like to go back to New York City again, and would like to visit Hershey, PA, to check out The Hershey Story Museum and all the fun chocolate related attractions the city has to offer.

Music is one of Doug’s favorite things. He is an avid fan of country music and spends a lot of his time checking out the different country stations in the Twin Cities. Each time he visits the State Fair, Doug likes to go to one of the country radio booths and get himself a hat or a t-shirt for the station. His favorite country artist is Dolly Parton. When we were visiting with him at his house, Doug was also eager to show us his new John Denver CD, and to tell us that John is another one of his favorite artists. Doug has never gone to a country music concert, but this is something that he’d like to do in the future.

Doug also loves to watch TV and movies. Each week, he has 10 shows that he must watch, including “The Resident,” “Chicago Med,” “911,” “Hawaii 5-0,” and “MacGyver.” When it comes to movies, Doug says he likes “all movies,” but prefers “space ones.” He was excited to tell us that he recently went to see the new Star Wars movie with one of his friends.
