Graduate Spotlight: Brittany Garris

Fort Campbell, Ky (September 29, 2020) – Brittany Garris became a mom for the second time several months ago. She and her husband arrived at Fort Campbell, Ky., in the summer of 2019 when they were just a family of three. When her new baby boy arrived amid COVID, she knew she wanted to be home as much as possible. Family has always been Brittany’s top priority, but she also wanted to be a part of the workforce and earn some extra income. When she began looking into her options for work-from-home jobs, she discovered Digital Works.

A social media post led Brittany to the Digital Works website, where she learned she could participate in one of their classes and it would prepare her in all aspects of remote work. She immediately registered and watched the orientation video that is provided to all applicants. The program, she thought, seemed like a perfect fit.

Just a week later, she was an official student in the June class — learning valuable customer service skills, sales techniques, and proper phone etiquette. In her last week of class, with the help of her facilitator, she was able to put together a top-notch résumé and was introduced to dozens of vetted remote vendors.

After graduating from the three-week program, Brittney was hired to work from home for a company that allows her to choose her own schedule. She has the ability to work in hourly increments around her children’s sleep schedules and in the evenings when they are occupied.

When asked what she gained most from the Digital Works Program, Brittany said: “The ability to make my own work schedule. It gave me the freedom to spend more time with family, whether we’re just talking about our day, watching a movie, or having fun outdoors.”
