I use flexibility every day to maintain my work schedule and school schedule. I also use flexibility to incorporate various other items into my day to day schedule such as participating in the Leadership Legacy Program at the University of Kentucky and volunteering throughout Lexington. Although it isn't always easy managing school and work, the flexibility at iWin allows me to arrange my schedule in a way that best suits me. This allows me to spend more time at the park with my lovable lab Jessie-Bell.
