Better Careers Start Here
In Kenya, Doreen served many patients as a counselor, helping with their emotional and social needs. Her dream when she immigrated to the United States in 2018 was to receive healthcare training to help with patients' physical needs as well.
Doreen thought she would have to put her dream on hold due to the high-cost of training, until she heard about the Healthcare Career Pathway program partnership with Opportunity Junction, Mt. Diablo Adult Education, Empowered Aging, and local employers.
She was hired by Willow Pass Healthcare Center, as a full-time Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA). Doreen was given the CNA of the Year Award last year, and says, “It was really encouraging for my work to be recognized."
"I really appreciate Opportunity Junction and Mt. Diablo Adult Education for giving me this chance. Before this training, working in a hospital setting was a dream that has now become my reality. I am a new me. I am working with the alumni career counselor to take steps to work in a hospital one day. I see myself as valuable in this field. OJ made a healthcare worker out of me!"
