Determination and Tenacity

Patricia Snoddy, HealthCare Academy Spotlight Story

“Life was difficult for me and my boys for a while, but JVS gave me what I needed to lift myself up and find work. My work is much more than a job—it’s my lifeline.”

Until the recession hit, Patricia Snoddy had a solid job. The San Francisco native and mother of three witnessed her office shut down piece by piece when operations—and her job—moved overseas. As a Navy veteran with over 25 years of work experience, Patricia was not worried about finding new employment, but three years passed and she continued to remain without a job.
