Shareem Lloyd means business. She enrolled in our Career Network: Healthcare program in 2017, determined to secure a future in the medical field. Shareem completed our 13 weeks of job readiness training, including classes at Hostos Community College and an internship at Montefiore Health System, while balancing her time as mother of three daughters at home. In April 2018, she was hired by New York Presbyterian (NYP) as a Radiology Aide earning $19 an hour. This year, Shareem was promoted to become a Patient Assistant, earning $24 an hour. And she’s ready to achieve more.
“She quickly acclimated to a fast-paced job working with patients,” remembers Monique Daniels, Recruiter at NYP. “New in her role, she relied on her learnings from Phipps Neighborhoods.”
“I’m planning on starting nursing school this January,” said Shareem. “More reasons to smile and dream bigger.”
