Professional Summary

I started working when I was seven years old dancing for the Pennsylvania Ballet. I did that for many years professionally, then once I got to high school I started a new chapter in my life by playing sports although I started playing softball at age nine. I played softball and field hockey all four years and was captain of both of my teams senior year. As soon as I was sixteen I got my working papers and starting looking for jobs; although every summer I worked with my father and his pool business putting in pools and liners and doing other outdoor work. After high school I also coached my field hockey team for one season whilst I was working and going to college.

I have had a multitude of wonderful jobs even before my first job stated on this resume at Sesame Place. I have a wide array of experience in all kinds of fields and I also have personal experience from the real world which also helps me exceed in whatever job I am in.

My future plans currently involve going to a four year school to get my bachelors in Psychology. Then from there I plan to attend law school to receive my law degree so I can go on to become a Criminal Prosecutor and or also pursue my master in Psychology so I may become a Criminal Profiler.
