Abigail worked in the medical field in the back office on a very limited basis. She was receiving public benefits, but she knew with more education she could increase her income and hopefully even more importantly for her, no longer need public benefits.
However, she was hesitant to leave her comfort zone. With some encouragement from family, friends, and coworkers, Abigail started to search how she could progress her career. She took the big step and enrolled in nursing school.
With the financial backing of her special needs trust administered by Springhill Pooled Accounts Trust, Abigail was able to pay for her education and graduated as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN). She is now employed, working as LPN, and no longer receives public benefits.
