About me

My goal in life is to make the world a better place, whether that is helping an individual or helping many people at the same time. I want to find ways to help others that uses my skills and strengths. With a background in education, human services, and customer service, I am skilled at creating relationships with others and would love a job that allows me to continue to utilize these skills. In addition, I believe that everyone deserves respect and that diversity, curiosity, and responsibility are important values that should be built into everyone's lives and I want to work for a company that works towards these values also.
