The event is noon to 1 p.m., Dec. 9 at Hotel Fredonia.
“Issues affecting the employment outlook, how the workforce is changing and what industries and jobs look good for 2012 will be some of the main points covered in the presentation,” Hartsook said.
Hartsook assists the executive director with the planning and oversight of contracted operations for workforce centers and subsidized child care in the 12county, deep east Texas area. She is also a grant writer, labor market researcher and analyst, contract manager, performance analyst and special projects manager.
Hartsook has been involved in workforce development since 1988 as an eligibility specialist and program monitor with Deep East Texas Council of Governments. She worked with the Texas Department Human Services from 1994 until 1999, when she began employment with the Workforce Solutions Deep East Texas as the Program Manager for all workforce programs.
In 2001, Hartsook graduated magna cum laude from Stephen F. Austin State University with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree.
She moved to Lufkin in 1985 where she reared her two children, and she now enjoys “the two most beautiful and wonderful grandchildren in all of Texas,” she said.
