Natasha Trinkle

Trinkle enrolled in WorkOne services in November of 2014 as an in-school youth. At the time, she was 21 years old, in her first semester of a Registered Nurse (RN) program and was homeless. Throughout her schooling, WorkOne helped Trinkle with tuition, books, uniforms, NCLEX testing and frequent mentoring and counseling.
