Professional Summary

As a recent graduate of The Academy Of Peer Specialist, I've realized that I have a vast wealth of experiences from which to draw from in order to comprehend, communicate and relate to others in this field. My honesty and true compassion to advocate for others, particularly the elderly and disadvantaged, comes second nature to me only because I know what it is like to not have advocacy. 

 I am a great listener, and have good documentation and communication skills. Drawing from my Culinary Arts teaching position I can delegate work and responsibilities to others. I can teach a corriculum that requires speaking to large groups of people/students, engage others in critical thinking and assignments to the fruition of course.

 I have live-in experience in Foster Care , Foster Homes, and the Department of Corrections. I was Spokesperson for Fernando Mateo, M.I.T. and spoke to a graduating class of the High Impact program at Rikers Island. I became a Facilitator for the New Beginnings program, N.A. and A.A. ,thus have working knowledge of running a structured program.

 I am willing to learn, work well with others and enjoy the learning process. Since this field is an ongoing learning process. To further facilitate others I have a certification in Hearing voices facilitators training, also S.S.I. and S.S.D. insurance training and will continue to further my education to assist me to advocate for others and counsel, provide comfort and faith in others.

 I am a published writer, an Artist and a Musician and am willing to use these skills in conjunction with all else, if need be, to connect with my clients.
