Work Philosophy

My work philosophy highly correlates to the Army values. There are seven Army values which are, loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity and personal courage. I believe that everyone should be loyal to their work to ensure that they contribute their highest efforts to not only themselves but to their employer. Honor and integrity are essential to having a strong work ethic due to the fact that you must be honest and honorable when developing a first impression. Finally I have five of my own key goals that I try to establish in a working environment. First and foremost, I believe that everyone can do anything if they have a positive attitude and give 100 and 10 percent to everything they are tasked out to do. I also believe that teamwork is essential to success as well as communication not only in a working environment but in all aspects of life. By setting high standards for myself I have utilized the Army values to become strong and motivated so that I can reach these standards. Finally my motivation has pushed me to develop a strong curiosity and passion to help others establish a healthy life style by combining healthy eating as well as structured exercise. 

Professional Goals

I have four key professional goals that I plan to accomplish within the next two years.
  • Become a Dietetic Technician. 
  • Complete my Masters of Science degree in Exercise Science. 
  • Utilize my knowledge from my undergraduate and graduate degrees to help the geriatric population become more knowledgeable about healthy life styles with food decisions and exercise plans.
  • Be employed at a Nursing Home or Personal Care Home to help staff and personnel to develop and understanding to better assist geriatric patients.

My long term professional goals consist of:

  • Becoming a Registered Dietitian as completing a certified Internship.
  • Opening my own Personal Care Home. 
  • Establishing a physical fitness program for geriatric patients.
