Client Profile: How MNLCT Can Get You Back in the Job Market

Jurephie came to Canada in 2007 as a caregiver, and became permanent resident six years later. She started the HOPES Program with some anxiety and family concerns. She quickly applied the strategies learned to find ways to have more time for herself, and focus on a positive direction for her career. Jurephie completed the HOPES Program, registered in a Career College to complete a Business Administration Diploma, and is now building her own business.
