Hello, my name is Karen Daube. I have a Master’s Degree in Counseling Education. My background includes working with youth and adults, and for the past 15 years I have served as a Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) Specialist. As a TAA Specialist and Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act Career Coach, I have helped hundreds of Dislocated Workers identify their strengths and make informed choices to give them the best opportunities for success through job training grants and job placement assistance. Many of the workers I assist are from the healthcare, manufacturing, customer service, information technology and business industries sectors. My customers have successfully pursued educational paths, including high school equivalency, English for Speakers of Other Languages, Certificate training, Associates, Bachelors, and Masters Degrees, resulting in subsequent employment to improve their lives.
