A little about the facilitator…

Miriam Jobin grew up in Dartmouth, NS before moving a short distance away to Lower Sackville. She attended school in the CSAP system, learning French as a second language. Her French language is what brought her to The Phone Lady, translating and delivering content. She is now responsible for the Job Skills Workshop, which she is also building into an online course. At home, Miriam has a 5-year-old daughter named Scarlett and together they love to sing, dance and craft.

"I enjoyed the workshop. Miriam was very joyful and easy-going throughout."
