Meet Tiffany

Workforce Challenge

In January, 2009, the aerospace company where Tiffany had worked for three years as a Materials Technician closed its manufacturing plant in Bend, leaving Tiffany jobless. With only a high school diploma, and more people losing jobs every day, Tiffany wanted to change industries and return to school to obtain her Dental Assistant Certificate.

Workforce Solution

Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council (COIC), WorkSource Bend, supported Tiffany as she entered the Dental Assisting program at Central Oregon Community College. OWA/COIC provided funding from the the employer's National Emergency Grant for Tiffany’s Dental Assisting program, and COIC assisted in her job search upon completion of the program.

Outcomes & Benefits

Tiffany now has a job in Bend with a new dental office and is excited to be in a career field that is stable and provides opportunity for growth.
