Day to Day

I feel fortunate that I do not have a typical work day. The day to day needs of an Outreach Coordinator can vary drastically and at the drop of a hat. The day can include travel to various counties, meeting with community partners, working with students and families, and sending out communications regarding updates and new initiatives that we are rolling out.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

Learning how to communicate in a professional manner and conduct yourself as a professional adult. Adaptability and flexibility are two of the most helpful skills to possess in any workplace.
