Carmen Moreno

Career Coaching Participant

“ SkillUp is like therapy. I was so lost and confused. I was laid off from my job of over 10 years and did not know where to start. I felt so lost. Your coaching gives me hope and makes me feel like I am not alone. It helped me realize that these things happen (job loss) and that there is opportunity out there and I have support. Thank you SkillUp! ”
