Thanks to New Ventures Maine’s (NVME) Financing Your Future
class and the Family Development Accoun
t (FDA) matched savings program, Gail was able to go back to college part-time while working full-time and graduate debt-free. Gail graduated debt-free in 2010 with her Associate Degree. She then went to work in the office at Lane Construction. She is currently working toward a Bachelor degree in business at Husson.
Gail is a prime example of how to “pay it forward.” She took what she learned, and has used it to benefit others. She is currently working at the Aroostook County CA$H
site as an Asset Organizer
. Gail provides tax filers with one-on-one asset coaching based on their needs. This may be referring them to classes such as the one she took through NVME, matched savings accounts like FDA’s or other local resources.
