Summary

Biography: Courtney Dedrick is a high energy, passionate, caring, and trustworthy female who has gone through 4 years of college in order to pursue her dream of obtaining a degree that will allow her to help others. Courtney was inspired to become involved in a field that helped others after her grandfather whom she was close to passed away while she was in high school. Courtney wanted to do anything she could to help ease the pain her grandfather was going through. While at one of his doctor appointments she had picked up an article that advised cancer patients to consume fruits, vegetables, fish, and other healthier choices versus red meats. This intrigued her and inspired her to look more into healthy food options with different diseases. While Courtney does not have her grandfather now, she is wishing to help other needy people who want her help as a college graduate from the dietetic track.

Work philosophy: I believe that everyone who works should look at their job as contributing to the world around us. I also believe that people should take their job seriously because each job affects some other person, whether it is good or bad. I want my career to put my knowledge and skills to the test.

Skills

Care for

Ever since I can remember, I have cared for animals as well as humans. I always wanted to cure family members colds and I wanted to make every pet I had live for as long as possible.

Research

High school was were I first acquired this skill. I did research on anything from colleges to disease and food consumption.

Open minded

Throughout college I realized that you can not be close minded if you want to embrace new ideas, customs, or even discoveries.

Self motiveated

Without self motivation I would not have gone to college.

Trust

Trust is a big priority to me, I feel as though everyone needs someone they can talk to and trust.

Customer service

Ever since my first job at the age of 16, I have had to have the skill of customer service. 

Organization

Organization has been apart of my life since my junior year in high school when I started getting more assignments and when I was working a job because I wanted to keep track of what I had to do and how much time I had to accomplish the tasks. I write a to-do list everyday where I prioritize all my tasks.

Communication

Communication is used everyday in my life whether it be speaking and/or writing/typing.
