Theresa’s Employment Story


Theresa is hot to trot to work more!

Theresa attained her dream job of working with horses last summer when Youth Works assisted her in getting a position at Pacific Country Stables.  Theresa worked throughout the year as a stable hand.  This summer Theresa wanted to take on more hours and her employer, barn manager Lexi, agreed.  It was good timing because in July more horses were brought in, doubling the amount of hours Theresa worked and Theresa was up to the challenge.  She reported that “It is a lot of work, but it is worth it!” Lexi says that in this industry stable hands often quit, and sometimes don’t show up for shifts but Theresa is completely reliable and she appreciates that she can depend on her.  Lexi says that all of the staff love her as well.
