I have had many years working with youth and seniors in various community in-home and office outreach programs in addition to my last position; Veterans Outreach Specialist. These include two years with Junior Leader programs; three years with American Red Cross; two years with Young Pioneers; 25 years with National Boy Scouts of America; two years with a sports center and two years as resident at-risk youth adviser. I have a deep regard for our youth and seniors because their contributions are vital to a healthy world both past and present.
I've completed field experience in issues in drug addiction and terminal senior and youth health, co-op educational recreation; leisure studies; one year WSI online Essential Learning Training in health assistance with a certificate for medication and sociology.
I have worked as the Veterans Outreach Specialist overseeing activities, referrals, IPC, consulting, Veteran's services, and Veteran and family case management. I have demonstrated the ability to follow rules, regulations and procedures in this regional service position. This position requires general and specific knowledge of disability, employment of Vets with disabilities and community based programming methods. I have also demonstrated the ability to supervise and foster diverse goals and objectives for health and family needs. I have the ability to communicate orally and in writing in a clear and persuasive manner. I can provide direct assistance to handicap adult citizens and autistic adults.
