Debra’s Story
Wanting To Help Others
A history major in college, Debra initially thought she would be a teacher. Over time, she realized that wasn’t for her, but while teaching English abroad, she saw the challenges immigrants face. Realizing she wanted to help people integrate into the U.S. workforce, Debra was a natural fit for WES’ Global Talent Bridge Team.

Debra’s work days are always a little bit different, especially since her job often involves responding to breaking news and government policy changes. Her overarching goal, however, remains the same—to develop and share up-to-date resources which help foreign-educated immigrants acclimate to their new country and find jobs which align with their skills.
 
 
“We’re responsible for developing and sharing resources about how to better get foreign-educated and skilled immigrants into jobs that align with their skills.”
