Meet Margaret

ABLE Refresher & MOT Graduate, and SCSEP Participant

'I want to tell you about my position at North Shore Community Health! I am Admin Support for the HR Department [as a SCSEP participant]. You and Janice Braithwaite were INSTRUMENTAL in getting me in front of this great team. Her co-workers, at NSCHI, [and Allan Broome of ABLE], made the transition beautiful. It is a testimony to the Medical Office Training Program that I can be so positive about my future.’

-- Thank you always,  Margaret C.
