MY ACHIEVEMENTS

Serving the community is a big deal. Whether it’s reconstructing and raising money for a charity, writing technology grants for schools, or clearing trash from a nearby creek, a community service project is an excellent way to bring about change in a small, intimate level. But before volunteering your time, make sure that your project has a particular focus.

I love giving back to the community I serve. Community service is a rewarding thing to do in your free time. I'm not just talking about possible rewards you physically earn, and I'm talking about how it benefits your community and the impact it has on promoting change when needed. The changes your service could create is endless, whether it is for homeless people, the environments, or just because you want to make a difference, in the community.

I enjoy working with community organizations as a volunteer and consultant. The projects I have been involved with have covered a verity of scopes and scale to include Technology, Strategic Planning, Social Media, Promotional Products Consulting, and community organizing. My community involvement is a reflection of who I am and where my career has taken me, to where I think I’m headed for the next foreseeable future.
