Tyisha

Meet Tyisha

A survivor of domestic abuse, Tyisha had been out of work for several years wrestling with depression when she enrolled in the PA CareerLink®, operated by JEVS. Tyisha felt that finding a job she loved would be the extra motivation she needed to continue her recovery. She worked diligently at PA CareerLink, taking advantage of all of the program’s offerings. As she flourished, Tyisha’s quiet demeanor changed for the better.

With a new reason to smile, Tyisha took on tasks well beyond the program requirements, including interning at the reception desk at JEVS’ headquarters office. While at CareerLink, Tyisha focused on enhancing her customer service skills and studied group facilitation in order to expand her capabilities to make her more marketable to employers.

With her newfound confidence, positive attitude and on-the-job training, Tyisha landed a great job at Community Behavioral Health as a quality assurance administrative assistant. An inspiration to her three children—and everyone who knows her—Tyisha plans to continue her education and pursue a degree in human services. She is also active as a volunteer and mentor with several organizations to end domestic violence.
