I am an outgoing, a self-initiator, responsible and compassionate individual who will make a great companion.
I am currently completing my Baccalaureate in Health Science with a minor in Psychology at Mercy College. My expected graduation date is May 2014.
My long term goal is to pursue a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy. I have completed coursework in Psychology across the lifespan, Abnormal Psychology, Health Psychology, Psychology of Aging and Mental Health, Medical Terminology. My target population will be geriatrics and to that I have volunteered my time at the Cobble Hill Nursing Center from 02-2013 until present.
I have held various positions in the hospitality and retail industries. Having worked in this capacity has instilled in me the ability to provide exceptional service.
I am currently an after school child care provider but I would also like to be of service as a companion during daytime hours.
