It takes strong roots for a plant to grow, but every gardener will tell you that sometimes it takes a little help to get those roots established. Last year, Shartina struggled for financial independence and security for her family. Today, with the help of Wisconsin Works, Shartina is achieving these goals with a new career at Alta Resources.
Shartina credits her case workers, Sarah and Ian, for helping her to overcome her employment barriers “through [their] time, encouragement, and patience.” She is excited for the opportunity to practice her communication skills at her new workplace while earning a living that supports her family.
“Thank you all at Forward Service Corp who had a connection to me and my success, to God be the glory,” says Shartina, who says that she plans to stay firmly rooted in her new job as she looks for promotional opportunities. You’re welcome, Shartina, and congratulations!
