Jenny Benitez

Position: Vocational Evaluator

Hello I am Jenny Benitez, MA, CRC.  I have been working with employU as a vocational evaluator since November 2020.  I have over 8 years of experience as a vocational evaluator. I specifically work in the areas of Lakeland, Leesburg, Tampa, and Winter Haven.  I am originally from Ft. Myers, FL and I have been living in the Tampa Bay area for several years.  I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Master of Arts degree in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling from the University of South Florida.  I hold a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC) credential from the Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification.  I have worked with individuals with disabilities for almost 20 years and I truly enjoy this field.  The ability to assist in identifying vocational goals with our clients is very rewarding.  Everyone is unique and has strengths they may have not recognized before.  Giving others the opportunity to identify their strengths leads to job goals they may have not considered in the past.

My position brings me great joy and satisfaction.  In my personal time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two young children, being outside, and running.
