What is it like to work with us?

Thank you so very much for your guidance and assistance. It made a great difference to me to have someone to discuss ideas with and to provide perspective and feedback. It helped boost my confidence and provided me new skills. VT Works for Women is doing important work!

I cannot thank you enough for all of your help and support. Honestly, I think our meeting really helped me make the transition out of travel sales. Your input and editing of my resume were a game-changer.
