Barbara Baker, a registered dietician, and her former boss, contacted Jackie to tell her about an opening at PCH for a cook. Jackie wasn’t looking for another job, but thought about the call from Barbara and the potential opportunity. Well, you know the rest of the story. Jackie did interview and was offered the position of dietician for PCH.

Gwinnett is great and success lives here, yes, but not for everyone. Witness the work of the Gwinnett Coalition for Health and Community Services and its Helpline, providing information and access to food, healthcare, childcare, housing, clothing, and a plethora of other sources of relief.
