Summary

I have worked as a recruiter, culture and experience leader, people services, talent acquisition, counselor, and educator, in Bangkok, Thailand, Mpumalanga, South Africa, Siem Reap, Cambodia, Boryeong – Si, South Korea, to Atlanta, Georgia and Hazard, Kentucky in the USA. I envision with every opportunity I obtain that I can extend whatever access to information and resources I have to share and bridge a cultural connection. My work has given me the opportunity to develop skills such as; setting up systems in order to handle compliance issues on grant-funded positions and in higher education, solving employee relations’ issues within college leadership task teams and civil right issues with severely mentally ill clients, create programming to enhance students’ transition from high school to postsecondary education, design curriculum, and grants research. Along with developing these skills I have been in charge of creating innovative programming for at-risk urban and rural youth, which included mentorships, apprenticeships, leadership learning, coaching, and development. I have worked in Rural South Africa on a project designed to address the correlation between education and growth of HIV/AIDS with an emphasis on empowering young women. I taught English to students in South Korea and created an after-school program focused on self-esteem and confidence building. As the College Admissions Counselor in Cambodia, I have made it my mission to provide opportunities for students to enroll in colleges that some may not deem possible. In 2015 I was awarded the OACAC Scholarship Recipient (International Association for College Admission Counseling) and the Inclusion, Access, and Success Committee. In Thailand, I worked as a mentor and guided Asian women to economic growth and leadership development. All of these experiences enriched me personally and professionally while solidifying my desire to work tirelessly to build leaders wherever I go
