Kyle Adams has been appointed job developer at ProAct in Hudson, the nonprofit’s only Wisconsin location. Adams will play the key role in finding employment opportunities for people with disabilities.

“Kyle’s ability to connect with employers and to communicate the benefits provided byKyle Adams our workers has been crucial,” said Sally Ogren, director of programs and services for ProAct in Red Wing. A native of southeastern Wisconsin, Adams brought years of experience to ProAct’s Red Wing location in 2011. He is a graduate of UW-Stout with bachelor’s degrees in human development and family studies and has received specialized training.
