Kim’s Story

Kim was accepted into The Academy of Professional Development at New Moms in Jan 2013. She excelled in class and was a natural leader. With help from her Supportive Employment Specialist, Kim was able to remove personal barriers to employment and obtain a job right after finishing the program.  Kim now works at Charter One Bank as a bank teller and has a bright future ahead of her.

This past month, we were happy to have Kim come back as a guest speaker in our training classroom. Kim talked about her own financial journey and gave tips and guidance on how to manage personal finances. Kim also presented on some of the benefits of banking at Charter One Bank and coached some of the current Academy participants into opening up their first bank account.
