SNAP E&T Program Lays Groundwork for Long-Awaited Career Change

June 9, 2021

Without a clear plan after high school graduation in 2011, Taylor Garcia found herself employed as a care giver.

Taylor pictured herself working in a business setting in data management.  She saw a connection between her interests and skill in dealing with people translating into the field of business.  Yet with no experience or specific skills, making the transition into a business career didn’t seem likely and being a self-described “people pleaser” made leaving a job difficult.  Praise from others about her empathetic nature and caregiving ability didn’t change how she felt about her career trajectory; she knew her dream and reality weren’t a match.
