OKEECHOBEE — Caitlin Lister is the employment consultant with the Employment Options Department for the not for profit organization Helping People Succeed.

For adults she works with clients that are looking for employment or wanting to keep employment.
During the meeting she spoke about challenges within her job, how they measure success and what the rewarding aspect of her job is.
