When Sarah first started attending job readiness workshops with Pathway to Success back in March 2017, she had not worked in over 10 years! She soon proved to be one of the program’s best participants, demonstrating perfect attendance and emanating positivity and encouragement to her peers. Through her hard work and dedication, she landed not one but two jobs! Although she enjoyed both of her part- time jobs, she kept her eyes open for a full-time opportunity and remained engaged with the Pathway to Success staff, who introduced her to an opportunity with Downtown Vacaville Eyecare. She was hired on in June 2018 as a full-time Optometric Receptionist. Sarah is enjoying her position and looking forward to growing in her career. The office manager who has worked at Downtown Vacaville Eyecare for over 15 years had this to say about Sarah: “Sarah is fantastic! She jumped right in and has gotten the front desk and our front office neat, clean and organized. She is friendly and a fast learner and we are very excited to have her on board."
