Professional Summary
My diverse professional career over the past 10 years has prepared me to be attentive, flexible, creative, motivated and friendly. I have worked in the fields of wilderness education, program coordination, personal assistant, land management consultant and wildlife tracking specialist. Because of my love for children I have done several youth programs such as wilderness summer camps, home school mentoring and early childhood care.
