Carolina Skies

I worked for a catering company on a military installation. I set up events that were held on and off location performing the duties of events assigned to me. Duties included but were not limited to place setting, serving food, replenishing stock, clearing placements and packing everything back up if the event were off site. I worked the lunch shift with a high turnover rate several times a week where I performed the same duties as a waitress, which included greeting customers, providing friendly and accurate service, handling money, cleaning tables, setting up and breaking down work stations. 

After about a year of working at the club, I was detailed to work in the cashier's cage on base. I was required to file documents(paper and electronic), update records, collect and handle large amounts of money, preform random cash drawer checks for the other NAF businesses on base, provide customer service, as well as any miscellaneous office tasks and clerical duties that would be required of me.  

I have also served at the residence of Major General Wells for private events. Once I notified him that I would no longer work at the club,he agreed to continue my services  for  his private events. I was the only employee that was asked to serve to him during private functions.

My employment at Carolina Skies ended when I felt as though I outgrew the team. There was no advancement for me, although I had asked several times for more responsibility. I can provide further details referring to this matter if necessary. 

May 2010 - Feb 2011


Private Employer

After moving to Hilton Head, I began searching for a job that only required me to work a few days out of the week, on account of my position as an avionics technician required me to perform training during the summer. I responded to an ad and was hired as a caregiver to a four year old child.  My days started early hours and ended in the late afternoons during the summer, and after-school hours during the school year. I planned activities to excel her reading and math skills. We watched educational programs and had discussions. We weren't all learning all the time and took many field trips to museums, libraries, and the beach. We got creative on rainy days and made the best of any situation.  I grew close with her and looked at her as my little sister, which made it harder to say good-bye.

My employment ended when I moved back to Sumter due to family illness.

Mar 2010 - May 2010

Caregiver/Program Coordinator/ Assistant to Director

Bright Beginnings

Upon my return to Bright Beginnings, I took over my previous position I attained prior to my enlistment in the South Carolina Air National Guard. I completed all tasks that I handled before as well as planning activities and coordinated schedules with staff. I arranged meetings and enrolled new students. I was a substitute in classrooms when caregivers had unexpected absences. At closing, I cleaned and secured the building.

My employment at Bright Beginnings ended when I decided to move to Hilton Head in May 2010. 

Oct 2009 - Mar 2010



I worked nine hour shifts at least four times a week. I had general duties, as any server would, such as tending to customers, taking orders, retrieving orders, etc.  I worked as cashier when the customers left and cleaned the tables. At closing, I cleaned the restaurant with the help of a fellow worker, stocked  items from boxes weighing twenty-five pounds, and prepped for the next day.

My employment at Osaka ended after I talked to the manager and decided to get back to work in daycare. 

Mar 2007 - Aug 2008

Caregiver/Program Coordinator/Assistant to Director

Bright Beginnings

Upon hiring, I began as a caregiver in classrooms with children 6-12 years of age. I then became a caregiver throughout the daycare with children of all ages we provided care for (6 weeks-12 years).  I was required to attend child care classes, keep records and training up to date, as well as attend and qualify in CPR training and Blood-Borne Pathogens Training.

As my employment progressed, I was offered a position in the office as a program coordinator.  I planned activities and schedules for the daycare children. I made the employee schedules, ensured their class schedules and events were on track, and stepped in at any time corrections needed to be made.  I also handled collection of fees, gave tours to prospective families, administered with enrollment  as well as daily office tasks that included but were not limited to answering phones and faxes, filing, and record upkeep. I also assisted with composing any necessary documents to ensure the business ran its course smoothly, such as newsletters to parents, memos for employees and information packets for new comers.  

My employment at Bright Beginnings ended two weeks prior to my leaving for basic training and technical training for the United States Air Force.

Mar 2006 - Nov 2006

Caregiver/Assistant to Program Coordinator, Director

New Horizons/Clemson University

Upon hiring, I began as a caregiver who came in to assist the full-time staff. I provided an opportunity for the staff to take breaks. I provided care to children between the ages of newborn to five years old.  I completed any necessary tasks that would maintain a household.

Approximately half-way through my employment, I was offered a position in the office as an assistant to the program coordinator who also held the position as director.  I preformed any office duties asked of me which included handling enrollments, filing and record up keeping, having conferences with case workers, and compiling monthly reports for the occupants which were sent to their case worker, which would ultimately decide their fate with the custody of their children. 

   My employment ended on mutual terms with my employer.  It was decided that my assistance was no longer needed because a new director  was hired, therefore eliminating my position.

High school diploma

Manning High School

I attained my high school diploma in general high school studies.

My junior and senior years of high school, I was enrolled in Child Care Services held through the F.E. DuBose Career Center.  We were taught the learning stages and development of children from conception to middle school aged.  We were taught how to compose class curriculum from pre-school to middle school. We learned different teaching techniques as well as how to “rule” a classroom.  I spent  hours during this class time volunteering at the local elementary school assisting teachers with lesson plan development, classroom work, as well as grading and filing school work.
