Carol Sarganis, Career Counselor
August 2015. Update. Carol recently retired. We are deeply grateful for her long service. Stay tuned for an article about Carol!
Carol joined R2W in 2006 as an Employment Specialist/Job Coach. Carol works with the Social Security Administration’s (SSA’s) Ticket-to-Work applicants, veterans, and the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) clients.
Overcoming a lifetime of physical challenges herself, Carol was impressed with R2W’s noble mission of providing assistance to individuals seeking employment. Although the true author is unknown, the quote “Aspire to inspire before you expire” encompasses Carol’s approach to life and work.
Carol attended Salve Regina College earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature and Elementary Education. Carol received a Master of Arts degree at the University of Rhode Island in Education and Reading. She taught Remedial Reading as a Title 1/Chapter 1 Reading Specialist on the elementary level for 28 years.
Throughout the years she has volunteered for numerous charitable organizations, schools, and an Adult Literacy Program to teach English as a second language.
Family, friends, children, and reading are Carol’s favorite personal pursuits.
Carol transitioned from fulltime employment to a volunteer consultant in May 2014.
