Carron’s story shows the power of Wisconsin Works. At first she was reluctant to enroll, but soon she saw that if she gave it her all everything could change. Now she says, “I’m excited about my life, I’m happy, and I’m going places!” During her work experience she did so well that she got hired as an Administrative Assistant. At the non-profit where she works, she has learned, laughed, and grown with her colleagues. “I’m learning to think of myself as a professional,” she adds. “I never imagined I would think of myself that way, but it is coming so naturally.” We knew you could do it Carron, congrats!
