Meet our Featured Volunteer: Victoria Fradette!

She has been volunteering with WorkFaith in various capacities for several years now. She started out volunteering as a Graduate Encouragement Caller one Tuesday a month (a role that she LOVED), and when COVID took over, she started volunteering as a Job Accelerator Program virtual practice interviewer. Victoria shared, “I cannot articulate the extent to which I’m encouraged and humbled each time I volunteer by each and every program participant that I interact with. It is because of the amazing graduates, employees and volunteers at WorkFaith that when I was asked to take on the Missions Lead role with my church, Grace Bible Church that I didn’t think twice in saying yes. In my volunteer role as Missions Lead, I am the primary point of contact for the areas of volunteers, communications and giving between GBC and WorkFaith.”

In a professional capacity, Victoria has worked in Human Resources in the oil and gas industry for over ten years. It is because of her area of work, interest and passion in HR that she has always wanted to get involved with the work of WorkFaith. She is originally from Canada; she and her husband moved to Houston six years ago. Victoria expressed, “We love Houston, the Astros and the amazing community we’ve been able to build since moving here. We have a beautiful and busy two-year-old daughter who lights up our lives every minute of the day.” 

Here’s what a Workfaith staff member had to say about Victoria:
I had the pleasure of working with Victoria as she volunteered to make Graduate Encourager Calls (GEC). She was so eager to contact the graduates because she loved to hear the stories of success of each graduate. She was such a positive source of encouragement to many of our graduates”
