“We searched for a long time to find the right candidate for our LaBelle Job-Link position,” says Fred Richards, Goodwill’s vice president of career development services. “We wanted someone with experience in social services, who was also fluent in Spanish. Elisabet brings both of those qualities to the table and we believe will be a great asset to the community.”

She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from the Universidad Nacional del Centro de la Provincia de Buenos Aires and a Masters in Gerontology from France’s Grenoble University and Argentina’s Universidad Nacional de Mar del Plata.
