In 2012, I was referred to Dress for Success Austin by my counselor at Austin Recovery. During my consultation, I was privileged to meet and work with a marvelous volunteer, Judy Rhode. She was most gracious and assisted me with rebuilding a professional wardrobe and reworking my resume and cover letters.
Since that time, I have returned to my hometown, Bryan-College Station, TX, rebuilt my career and returned to graduate school. In the spring of 2014, I became Dr. Laurie English. I wore the interview suit the day I defended my dissertation.
Thank you, Dress for Success Austin. The attention and encouragement that I received during my visits to Dress for Success were so uplifting. I count my visit to your organization as one of the pivotal turning points on my road to rebuilding my life.
