Hear from Andrea

“I lost my job, I lost my home, and I didn’t have anyone or anything to depend on.”

Andrea’s story is one of hope regained. She completed Jobs for Life in late 2012 and Faith & Finances in early 2013. She was part of the original crew that signed on for work at Wepfer Marine and, despite difficult work in hot and cold weather, she has become an important part of their team. She’s further developed her welding skills for the specialized marine environment. There aren’t many women in the water transportation industry, making Andrea’s success even more impressive.
