Peter

I am an Employment Coach at the Center for Changing Lives. My job involves partnering with our clients to set and achieve goals. I work specifically with our client in our Information Technology training program. This is a 32 week long course, in which our students walk away with an industry credential, the A+ certification, and college credit.
I enjoy working with clients on achieving their goals around employment. It is exciting to see our clients working towards a job where they can make a living wage!
