Heather was in an abusive marriage for 4 years. She had three children 2, 3, and a 10 with special needs. Heather was able to leave her abusive relationship with the support and help of family in May 2019. She moved in with her parents and started therapy to heal from her trauma. In July 2019, Heather heard about WIN through her brother who is a lawyer. Heather started her journey with WIN in July 2019. Heather was lost and was trying to find herself again. Heather thrived at WIN and learned who she was again. SHE FOUND HER VOICE! Heather received the Carina P. Michel Memorial Education Fund to get her GED with Kansel. She started working on her GED in December and is continued to work to achieve her goal. WIN was able to help Heather polish her resume and she worked with Human Relations (HR) mentors to enhance her employability. An attorney’s office contacted WIN looking for an office administrator. The staff at WIN knew that Heather was ready and has the skills they were looking for. WIN and HR mentors worked with Heather doing mock interviews before the big day. SHE WAS READY! Every time there was an obstacle in her way, she would just smile and say “I got this.” Heather had an interview and then was called to come back for a 2nd interview. On February 13, 2020, Heather came into the executive director office and said “I got the job and thank you for believing in me.” Heather started her new adventure on Monday. We are so proud of her and wish her the best.
