A note from Marla Jones-Price,
Employment Specialist

“As an Employment Specialist, my role is to assist those who are in transition. Regardless of a person’s current employment situation, I support him or her through the process of finding new employment. We work together to think about long-term goals, experiences and strengths. During our work together, I remind clients of their full potential and encourage them as they take steps towards fully realizing that potential.”
