My road in life has taken me all over.
Chose a major in college that interested me, but I wasn't quite sure what I would do with it once I graduated.
Moved back in with my parents after college and worked in retail while I looked for other jobs.
Decided to join AmeriCorps NCCC to travel around the country, serve, and expose myself to new skills and people.
While in NCCC, I joined the Fire Management Team and was trained as both a wildland firefighter and an emergency medical responder.
After NCCC, I came to Philadelphia to start working at my current job, where I was performing direct service connecting low-income individuals to public benefits such as SNAP and Medicaid.
I got promoted to Team Leader, where I now manage a team who are helping our clients gain access to healthy food and health insurance everyday.
All of my experience thus far has inspired me to start taking classes to pursue a degree in Nursing! I think it's a great way to continue helping others while remaining invested in their health.
