Woodrum applied to receive a service dog about two years ago and was elated to learn she was selected. Typically there is a waiting list with more than 2,000 applicants who must wait up to five years to connect with a service animal, Engum said.
Woodrum now works in human resources for a company, is a life coach and works as a vocational rehab counselor.
"Everybody goes through levels of changes in their limitations," Woodrum said. "I really feel we are all on the road [in life] together," she said adding everyone faces big changes. "Mine just came when I was 16."
