Meet Tanya

Workforce Challenge

When Tanya enrolled in WIA, she was receiving Food Stamps and supporting three children. She also was in treatment for depression. Tanya came in with a very limited work history including employment in housekeeping, filing, and home care. It was her experience in providing home care services that motivated her to become a Licensed Nursing Assistant (LNA).

Workforce Solution

After obtaining tuition assistance, and with the encouragement of her counselor, Tanya enrolled in the LNA program at LNA Health Careers in May of 2008. She excelled in the training, earning the highest grade in her class.

Outcomes & Benefits

Tanya obtained her LNA license in October of 2008. She started an LNA position at the Fairview Nursing Home soon after. She is earning $10.75 an hour to start. Tanya came out of training with a sense of hope and empowerment. She found a job that she loves and that will enable her to advance in the nursing field.
