Volunteer - Rape Crisis Victim Advocate

Women's Center of Tarrant County

Training included a 40 hour certification program that included information on sexual assault and sexual harassment – including the legal processes, psychological effects, and hospital procedures that survivors must deal with.

As a certified Rape Crisis Victim Advocate, I am on call 3 times a month. I go to hospitals and support survivors throughout their stay at the hospital, including thetime during forensic exams and while talking to the police. I explain to survivors the processes that will go on during their hospital stay and during legal proceedings, give survivors clean clothes and personal hygiene products, and provide resources to survivors such as phone numbers for legal counsel and psychological counseling. I also answer calls for the Woman's Center 24-hour hotline.

Skills

Skills

Attitude and Drive

Every day, I strive to do better than I did yesterday. Whenever I am assigned a task, I do it swiftly and completely, and whenever I am not assigned a task, I'm on the search for something to do.   I am very reliable and dependable. If you ask me to do something, it will get done. And you can always rely on me to show up on time - in my previous jobs, I never missed a day nor showed up more than a minute late.   I am a very positive and optimistic person. I always come in to work with a smile on my face. I am very easy going and bring no drama to the table.

Customer Service

I love exceeding customers' expectations. My goal when dealing with customers has always been to see them walk out the door with a smile on their face and saying to themselves, "Wow, I've really got to go back there soon."

Data Entry

  WPH: 85 KPH: 10,000   My previous work doing data entry has taught me the importance of speed AND accuracy while entering data into the computer.  

Computers

I work with Windows operating systems nearly every day. I am extremely fluent in Microsoft Office, including Power Point, Word and Excel. I am also extreamly fluent in internet browsers such as Firefox and Internet Explorer.   I am also comfortable working with Mac systems.
