My professional goal is to work with people in nonprofit, academic, or business settings that will allow me to support individuals to connect to their skills and passions. Positions in project coordination, volunteer management, facilitation and civic engagement are among the areas of particular interest. My skills and experience are transferable to other settings and I can easily learn and adapt to new roles and opportunities. My open and friendly manner makes me well-suited to positions with the public and I am a strong written and oral communicator.
