Business-minded professional tackling any job task with gusto and precision. Determined Front Office Supervisor delivering exceptional service and responding to questions and inquiries quickly. Demonstrates positive attitude and readiness to adapt to different situations.

I feel I may uniquely qualified to be a residential aide .

In my past I share some of the challenges that the residents may be encountering. By walking thru those challenges I have developed a sense of empathy and understanding for those who have experienced incarceration , homelessness and marginalization. I feel as though I may be able to understand their struggles and identify and relate to them in ways many people may not. Through that common indentification I may be able to be of service to them and help them in their transitition to a better life just like someone did that for me many years ago. To listen objectively and hear their concerns is a skill I have developed through my relationships with my own past clients and employees as well as my community outside of my work. I have been active in a recovery based community for the past 17 years ,being a mentor to people as well as volunteering to bring meetings into Bellvue, beth Israel and Rikers Island.

It is not only a sense of duty ,but of joy that I can use my own dark past which I have been delivered from and hopefully be a positive figure in someone else's life. I have always been interested in this type of field but never got to fully pursue it. I feel this opportunity to apply is not only potentially to a job but also a possible change in my trajectory. I feel as though i have alot I could gave to this job and community as well learn from the residents and about life itself. i am not sure if I am saying too much, but i am excited if this opportunity manifests and though my role may not be very entailed or lucrative I feel it would be very life changing for myself and hopefully the residents who I would get to know
