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.
