About Me

I have worked as a case manager for marginalized youth throughout my young career. I find this work to be gratifying because it allows me to help people break down barriers to success and provide them with the tools necessary for living a prosperous and fulfilling life. I am willing to make a career change. I believe that there are many places within the workforce that my passion for guidance can be an asset. If you feel my skill set is potential asset for you, please consider contacting me.

I took part in advanced life span coursework and training. I studied how human development can affect family development and relationships, multicultural issues, and social policy.

I was a member of the social-science student board of directors, as well as a board member of the health and wellness club. I was a residence hall assistant at Mitchell and nearby Thames Academy.I served as peer mentor, and I am founding member of a Youth Community Festival that continues to thrive in the New London Area.
