Nanny/Baby Sitter

This job helped me learn to adapt to a schedule to stick to it. I worked Monday-Friday from 8:00a.m. to 3:30p.m. This job also taught me a lot about responsiblity. I had to not only take care of myself but I was responsible for two other children, making sure they had breakfast, lunch and snacks throughout the day, as well as physical activity. We would go outside and play baseball or ride bikes, and if it were a rainy day we would play games on the Wii to still get the physical activity.

Computer Software

During highschool and the years I've been in college, I've taken computer science classes.  These classes taught be the basic knowledge of Mircosoft Word, Excel and Power Point.  I consider myself a fast learner so it didn't take me long to grasp the concept of these. Using the computer in my every day life, these computer softwares come in handy very often.

About Me: Short and Long Term Goals

I am currently a student at the University of Alabama. My short term goals include getting my bachelor's degree in Food and Nutrition, as well as becoming a Registered Dietitian through the Coordinated Program.  I also plan to get my master's degree in Food and Nutrition within the next couple of years. After I complete my short term goals, I intend to acheive my long term goals.  My long terms goals are to get a job at Children's Hospital in Birmingham, Al. I've always wanted to work with children in some way and to know that I could be helping their lives would be so rewarding, so pediatrics is definitely where my heart lies.

Memberships

I am a member of The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Volunteer Experience

I volunteered at DCH hospital in Tuscaloosa, AL.  I participated in a Disaster Drill where we had to prepare and be ready for patients who came in. The examples were a meth lab exploded and another was that the stadium was bombed and fell apart.  This taught me how to be prepared for accidents like this and to be on my feet and to be where I was needed most.  Now that I am a nutrition major, this drill has helped me tremendously. I now know that burned patients, like the fake ones I had during the drill, need special attention and need an increase in protein in order for their skin in heal properly, so I am glad that I participated in that drill.

I also volunteered in Alberta City during the tornado relief clean up.  It is important to me to show love in your community. EVeryone in the Tuscaloosa area was affected by the April 27th tornado so to lend a helping hand and to know that I made a difference in my community by helping clean up will always be a moment that I cherish and will never forget.
