Meet Monica

Workforce Challenge

Monica was referred to the WFC by the TANF program. Monica was receiving TANF until she recently found employment and transitioned to a post TANF program known as the Job Success Program (JSP). There, she was referred to the WIOA program to help her complete her associates degree as a veterinary technician as Monica was scurrently working for Best Buy, a stop-gap position to help support her and her four-year-old son while she completed her education.

Workforce Solution

Monica was referred to WIOA by her JSP case manager to help her with financial assistance to complete her associates degree. Once referred, I talked with Monica to help refine her educational/career plans in order to help her obtain her associates degree as a veterinary technician to increase her marketability and help her attain employment in her chosen career. With the fiscal help and vocational guidance Monica received from myself and WIOA, Monica was approved for a scholarship to help her earn her degree.

Outcomes & Benefits

Monica has recently finished her course training and is entering into her clinicals. After she completes her clinicals, Monica has job offers from at least two employers.
