Success story: Michelle Karambowich
Michelle was a cabinet builder until the recession, when she was laid off and couldn’t find any other work in this field. She had always enjoyed tinkering with her own vehicles, and had been fascinated with construction equipment and the power behind them to do such big jobs.
So when Michelle was offered an opportunity to enter the Heavy Duty industry through the program at Motive Action Training Foundation, she took it. Now she is a second-year Heavy Equipment Technician apprentice, and loves what she does.
"It has given me confidence in myself to be able to set my goals high. I make enough money now that I never worry about my bills anymore. I go on trips now and I’m buying my first house all by myself. Thank you Motive Action for changing my life in such a great way. I don’t know where I would be today without you."
