Karris came to GESMN to participate in retail skills and financial services trainings and was hired as a part-time cashier. As her skills and experience grew, Karris challenged herself to advocate for herself with her employer. After a rigorous interview process, she was offered a full-time position at the St. Cloud Hospital café. Through hard work, self-advocacy, and communication, Karris achieved her dreams of working in a hospital and being completely self-sufficient.
