For the month of September, we're bringing you stories of workers across Indiana, about what they do and how they find meaning in their jobs. This week, Indiana Public Broadcasting’s Justin Hicks profiles Jamie Beck, a housekeeper at IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital in Muncie. She’s an alumni of the Erskine Green Training Institute, a program that provides job training for people with disabilities.
