As with any first encounter, I would like to introduce myself and thank you for taking the time to review my resume. In 2010, I obtained an AS in Criminal Justice with the goal of continuing my studies in the juvenile justice system; I have since changed my goal to obtain a psychology degree. I graduated from Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) with a BA in Child and Adolescent Psychology July, 2015. I currently have a 3.3 GPA and I am a lifetime member of the Psi Chi community – this is an organization for psychology students that are within the top 25% of their class and hold a 3.5+ GPA. I am also a lifetime member of Sigma Alpha Pi, the National Society of Leadership and Success. I will be continuing my education with hopes to be accepted into John F. Kennedy University's Master's program for Transpersonal Counseling Psychology. I have a goal of also obtaining a future Doctorate degree in Neuropsychology or Clinical Psychology with classes focusing on neuroscience/psychology.
I have worked with adolescents and children of various ages in various settings. As a special education assistant I was more than a tutor, I was a mentor and a role model for those I worked with and interacted with. I also worked at an equine assisted therapy day camp teaching children and adolescents social skills.
There is more to me than what this short introduction can express. My educational and personal experiences are only part of what makes me an ideal candidate. I have worked in many customer service roles that taught me many invaluable communication and negotiating skills. Some of my positions required me to be in an administrative role where I managed a team or case loads. I have had the pleasure of working with people of all different backgrounds and personalities, a setting I thoroughly enjoy. In my office position, I learned the importance of accuracy, speed and time management. I also learned the importance of privacy and properly filing away sensitive information.
