I am the newest member of the Dress for Success Pittsburgh team and I don't think I could be happier. I am the Branch Manager for the Washington County branch of Dress for Success and am excited to get started, because this job will allow me to combine my educational background of Public Relations, with my love for non-profits and working with people, and my passion for styling all into one. And I am ready to rock Washington County.
If you do not know about Dress for Success, it is an international organization that promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support, and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. What I like most about this organization is that it is focused on women, and gives those women the tools to empower themselves. I truly believe that empowerment comes from a desire within yourself to make a difference in your life, and not that other people can empower you. And I think Dress for Success gives women the tools to empower themselves. I'm so thrilled to be a part of this organization.
I also am very blessed to have such an amazing support system through my job hunt journey and I promise each of you that I will pass on your words of encouragement to my future, job-seeking clients.
