Fridley, MN, United States Dec 2010 - Dec 2011 ER Volunteer
Unity Hospital instills strong values that employees and volunteers need to have in: the work place, at home, away from home, with friends and family, and even with those who are hard to be around. My volunteer work at Unity helped me develop skills that are appropriate in a health care environment, such as attentiveness while on shift, caring for those who are in need of comfort or peace of mind, always staying true to strong values, and never leaving a task or obligation unfinished, regardless of the degree of difficulty.
Volunteering in a hospital environment has given me experience that I would never have gained in other fields of employment. It has broadened my perspective in regard to the medical field opportunities, as I am looking forward to working in healthcare while durring college as well as afterwords.

American Red Cross Blood Drive
Fridley, MN, United States
February 5th, 2011 - August 31st, 2011
Blood Drive Coordinator
Setting up and working through the long hours of making a blood drive happen is not as easy as it sounds, nor was it unbearable. In the month of February I came up with the idea of running my own blood drive through the American Red Cross, although I wasn’t sure how to get started. By looking on www.redcross.org and contacting their blood drive services, I was able to move forward in conducting a blood drive. The process to complete this project took roughly 6 months and the goal of blood donors needed to be around 20 participants, while including myself in that lump sum of 20. The blood drive was successful and took place on August 31st, 2011, in the parking lot of Bob’s Produce (Fridley) which was sponsored by Dunn Brothers Coffee (Fridley).
