Employment Specialist 

I am so blessed to be a part of the resettlement process for refugees in Charlotte. I joined the Employment Team in February 2016 as a Case Coordinator and accepted a position as Employment Specialist in September 2016. I had recently completed my internship with our Case Management Office and was excited to continue with the organization.

As an Employment Case Coordinator, I was able to take charge of our monthly Employment Orientation. During this time we are able to prepare families for working in America. We hear stories of what they did in their country and how those same skills can be used here. Every family has such a unique story and every challenge is different. We face these challenges together and we learn together. This is one of the reasons why I love this work. Our goal is to help families become self-reliant as soon as possible. It brings me joy to watch as they achieve this. I am excited for new opportunities and partnerships for our current families and those who have yet to come.
