Summary

I am a young professional looking to explore entry-level opportunities in non-profit organization management and health care administration. I am particularly interested in programs that allow me to work directly with at-risk and disadvantaged populations administering social support programs that provide advocacy, promote independence, and encourage active participation and engagement in the local community. I enjoy interacting with people of all ages, building meaningful relationships, and helping others to develop and realize their full potential regardless of past obstacles. We all have strengths, talents, and abilities. It is up to us to discover our own and help others along the way whenever possible.
