What is it that you do?
I am the Director of Re-Entry Services and CareerLink Operations. I oversee the operations of programs designed to help individuals facing barriers ( like having a criminal background) earn full-time life-sustaining employment.
What problem/challenge do you help solve for your clients?
I help create programming as well as ensure services are running smoothly to help Lancaster County’s unemployed or underemployed. The services that we offer not only help clients land jobs where they are making a living wage but are also strategically designed to help address barriers that may be affecting the individual’s ability to land a job and/or retain it.
What services and/or products do you offer?
Individual Career Navigation, access to post-secondary training, soft skills training, recruiter services, case management, and even services for employers.
What is the best advice you've ever been given? If about to send an email while upset, sit on it, then re-evaluate in the morning.
