Health Coordinator

The University of TN Health Science Center

This position was a research driven project to address infant mortality in Memphis and Shelby County. I learned the technicalities of validated research and how to properly analyze data and critically think to solve multi-dimensional problems.My experience in program development and evaluation allowed the project to recruit needed subjects in large quantities to catch up to the original timeline. Instrumental in form creation and co-developing a research database to capture relevant metrics for the research project. I also assisted the Principal Investigator in updating protocols and the research curriculum. Recruitment, grant maintenance, technology integration, research policies, procedures, and protocols were important aspects of the position.

DV Program Coordinator

Educated clients regarding domestic violence utilizing presentation in classroom, business, and community settings. Coordinated educational efforts to include a first time Peer Education/Outreach Programs at MALS for life skills and job readiness. Developed classes to improve life skills and incorporated progressive workshops to enhance development and success. As a result less than 2% of women in program returned to their abusive relationships and were motivated towards self-sufficiency. Organized and arranged grant maintenance and compliance activities for efficiency and continuation of funding for all programs and staff development receiving funding in excess of $150,000 during my tenure. I learned the importance and value of support systems along with a coordinated community response to long-term success for the women served. Program development, grant maintenance, program assessment, were crucial to the success of this position.

Program Specialist

KinderCare Learning Center

My task as a program specialist was to travel to various KinderCare's in the city that had not received the 3 Star Childcare Certification rating from the Department of Human Services the previous year and get them ready for assessment. It was during my tenure as a program specialist that pushed me to begin studying program development. The solution was in knowing how to properly assess each program. Each program, ironically where ran differently. Essentially, I learned the program of the facility specifically the processes, procedures, and oversight of the instructors. I could then come up with a solution and begin training the teacher as to how to obtain 3 Star Certification. Every teacher I trained obtained the 3 Star Rating. As a result, I was promoted to Assistant Director. The most important take away from this position is program assessment.I remained an Assistant Director until moving on to Shelby County Government.

Community Center Director

Martin Housing Authority

The Tom & Ann Stewart Community Center is located in the middle of the Martin Housing Authority community. When I joined the staff of the housing authority there was only one operating program, the after-school program. There was no plan, no structure, so essentially no impact. I immediately began building relationships with parents, housing authority residents, and Martin community members. When I moved back to Memphis, TN, I left a thriving after school program with regular volunteers and retired teachers as part-time staff members. I am most proud of the significant academic and behavioral improvements of the students. They are all grown up now, but I still manage to keep in contact with a few of them. I spent a lot of time in the community at large and as a result, we were able to partner with training institutions that led to a GED and CNA program housed at the community center. I also began teaching a basic computer class for the parents of the after- school students. The program was intact with a metric and tracking system that utilized technology (rural area) and an excellent chance of receiving federal dollars. The most important take away from this position was program development. I studied other programs with similar demographics.
