Training Consultation, Design, & Delivery
Bridging the Skill Gap
Years of direct engagement with the high-wage, high-opportunity careers in Windham County have taught me how to identify the skills, knowledge, and education needed for someone to succeed in our local economy.
With extensive knowledge of available training resources, I can help your organization develop the best possible training to meet your workforce needs.
Career Counseling for Home Schools and Pods
Getting Ready for "What's Next"
With over 5 years experience working with local high schools and their students, I know how impactful one-on-one career guidance can be for students. As the job market and higher education landscape changes, I am here to help your student prepare for life after high school.
Support includes Resume and Cover Letter Writing, Job-Search and Interview techniques, and exploring resources and opportunities to pursue the next step in a students educational journey.
Vermont Workforce Funding 101
Funding the Next Opportunity
The State and Federal funding landscape for training and workforce development isn't easy to navigate, but there's no shortage of funding if you know where to look.
Whether you're a job-seeker looking for more skills, an employer looking to train employees, or an educator looking to start your own training program, I can help you find the path to success.
Policy & Advocacy
Systems Change for Community Impact
Some barriers go beyond funding and curricula, and changes in the system are necessary to support all Vermonters in their pursuit of better education and wages.
Having navigated the existing workforce system for years, I know the policies and players involved in creating (and preventing) lasting change.
New Vermonters in the Workplace
Creating Inclusive, Multicultural Workplaces
As Vermont's population begins to better reflect the American workforce, our workplaces may need to change and adapt to recruit and retain a 21st century workforce.
I can share trainers, resources, and tools that have supported our communities in creating more welcoming workplaces, as well as best practices at recruiting, training, and retaining New Vermonters.
