Summary

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to read my resume.  I graduated in 2007 from the University of NC at Greensboro with a Bachelor's in Sociology and Criminology.  Sociology was my major choice because I find people in general to be fascinating.  Criminology came about because I feel that "criminals" are an even more interesting genre of people. 

I have always been passionate about helping those in a time of need.  I am at my best when working in situations where superior communication, persuasion, and organizational skills are needed.
