My name is Gigi Guyton-Thompson. I work with an organization called New Ventures Maine (formerly Women, Work, and Community) through the University of Maine at Augusta. I cover Cumberland and York Counties helping under served populations start businesses, manage their money, and find jobs. I’m interested in this class because we do work in the prison and the women’s re-entry center in Windham. I’m hoping to learn other ways to motivate all of my clients to take the opportunities they have to improve their lives.
