Meet Kathryn

Workforce Challenge

Kathryn was a low income adult working at a retail store with high aspirations to become a Dental Hygienist. She found it extremely difficult to work full time to meet her basic living expenses let alone the cost of training.

Workforce Solution

Kathryn discovered the WIA program at WorkNet Pinellas, Inc. which was able to assist with two full semesters of funding for tuition and books. At the conclusion of these two semesters, Kathryn touted a 3.2 GPA. She was further assisted in the last two semesters through a combination of WIA and PELL funding; she also received assistance with the National and State Board exams and dental tools required for the exams through the WIA program.

Outcomes & Benefits

Following training, Kathryn proudly visited WorkNet Pinellas with a copy of her Dental Hygiene license. Since completion of training and receiving her license, Kathryn is employed with a local dental office making a salary of $60,000. She thanked her case manager and said that her accomplishments would not have been possible without the WIA program.
