Carolyn Isabelle, MA, PHR is the Director of Workforce Development at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (D-H). The Workforce Development team at D-H is working to develop and recruit a sustainable workforce for D-H in order to deliver the best possible patient care. One way they do this by engaging and training the people who live here in our NH and VT communities through a portfolio of training programs delivered through their licensed career school, the D-H Workforce Readiness Institute (www.dhwri.org). The team also supports regional and statewide efforts to address workforce barriers such as housing and transportation that not only impact the current workforce, but also hinder their ability to recruit new people to the region.
Prior to joining D-H, Carolyn worked for Bruce Power (Ontario, Canada), the largest provider of nuclear power in North America and spent close to 10 years in the hospitality industry (Western Canada and England).
