Helen fled a violent husband with her two children and lived in a shelter. With a successful career as an office manager, the stress of the move and the legal proceedings caused her performance at work to wane. After 14 years with the same company, despite successfully resituating in their new apartment, she lost her job.

Helen was referred to the Up With Women Career Development program, where she immediately got to work with her coach to build a plan for both a new job, and a longer term goal to build a business. Months later, she has launched two businesses and she is on her way.

She shares her story in hopes that other survivors who want hope, can be inspired.
