Meet Valerie

Workforce Challenge

Valerie was laid off from a high paying job in the manufacturing industry, and was interested in a career change that would lead to employment in a more stable industry. Unfortunately her unemployment compensation wasn't enough to cover the cost of furthering her education.

Workforce Solution

Valerie was qualified to receive assistance in pursuing a career change with tuition assistance. Valerie decided to go into the healthcare industry by pursuing an education in Medical Billing and Coding.

Upon completing the program, it was initially difficult to find a job, but Valerie persevered and with the assistance from the Workforce Center, she learned of a great opportunity at a local non profit.

Outcomes & Benefits

Valerie is now making over $17.00/hour starting as a billing specialist in a career field she feels is more stable and will provide opportunities for growth.
