Given my rich experiences in talent acquisition, business development, marketing, sales, HR, and education, I have many vaulable talents to offer any future employer. While finishing my BS at Saint Mary's College of California I challenged myself by activating a Psi Chi chapter on campus, an Honors Society in Psychology. As president, I created the club, organizing volunteer events including over 40 students, and ran monthly meetings. During this time I was participating in outside research with a professor and our results have since been published in a Psychology Journal. On my evenings I volunteered as a rape advocate for Community Violence Solutions, a Richmond based NPO.
Post-graduation I spent 6 months doing business development and fund raising for a start-up NPO called My Mothers Voice. I left My Mothers Voice in the winter of 2007 with plans to establish myself in the bay area once again. I managed a high-end boutique for 6 months while I searched for a position that would help build a foundation for my future. I soon found a home at GRN, a small firm recruiting passive candidates for the printing and marketing industries. Through this experience I have worked on the client and candidate side. This included making sales and marketing presentations to prospect future clients, finding their need, and filling that need, working the process from beginning to end.
After a wonderful experience in working with people to help them in their talent acquisition needs, I found that I still was ignited with my passion of people and human behavior. Working in a sales environment solidified the choice to continue my education in the field of counseling psychology. I am currently completing a Master's in Counseling Psychology and I am looking for a full time position that will help me grow my career.
