Jamie completed Climb's Intro to Medical Careers training.

“Now I have medical insurance for the first time in 15 years. I’m back in school to become a nurse.”

“I was stuck before Climb. We were on all the government assistance you can get, including subsidized housing. We went without a lot of necessities, and I had to make some tough choices about what and how we were eating. I had no medical insurance for myself so went without prescriptions, doctor visits, and being able to take care of some health issues I had at the time. Now I have medical insurance for the first time in 15 years. I’m back in school to become a nurse. I always wanted to be in the medical field but didn’t finish college and didn’t think I could ever go back. Climb said, ‘yes you can!’ Now my kids get to see how hard work pays off.”
