4-H Club Leader: At 4-H, we believe in the power of young people. In this nationwide and local outreach program I influence young minds to use their Head to clear thinking, Hearts to greater loyalty, Hands to service, and Health to better living. I guide children through lessons in health, science, agriculture, and civic engagement to spark skills within them to carry through a lifetime.
Assistant Site Manager: At The Lil', a community pool and center, I manage staff, guest relations, and facility operations to ensure safety and positive experiences for all. I oversee all staff management services while working to provide excellent customer relations.
Unit Head: I was responsible for supervising 75 campers and 20 counselors in a team unit through all of their camp activities, field trips, and programs. I facilitated the staff training program, co-lead bi-weekly staff meetings, and conduct staff evaluations. I was the primary liaison for parents in the unit, and maintained communication through phone calls, emails, and social media.
Health Specialist: I was part of a team that offers 24-hour social/physical service support to a student with disabilities at the University of Iowa. I assisted in activities of daily living and situations to fulfill average life needs. I administered prescription drugs, facilitated breathing treatments, and performed physical exercises. This also provided physical and emotional support and companionship for the patient.
Undergraduate Research Assistant: I assisted in language development and psychology research in order to better understand how we process language and produce speech. This involved assembling equipment to test subjects and maintain the experiment. I examined event-related potentials (ERPs) within brain waves gathered from electrodes. I helped with collecting data, evaluation and analysis to discover insight and form conclusions.
I strongly believe the power in giving back and contributing to the greater good. I volunteer to connect with the community, help others, and make a difference in the lives I work around. Ask me how you can get involved with these organizations!
