Our History

In the beginning

Advanced Employment was founded in June of 1992. The agency spun off of one of the original Dane County Supported Employment Agencies, Community Work Services. Two workers, Krisanne Stern and David Verban ventured out on their own to satisfy the demand for more Supported Employment opportunities in Dane County.

Progress

Since the beginning the Agency has grown to support over 110 individuals through Supported Employment, DVR Services and private pay opportunities. Currently AE supports 5 Micro Enterprises owned by individuals with disabilities and hosts 2 businesses employing over 20 individuals, Personal Shopping and WDW Cleaning.

In the future

Given the economic times, we are always looking at ways to support individuals in developing additional skills. We can help assess businesses and assist Employers in creating efficiencies through hiring the individuals we support.
