Joined 2 years ago from Sarasota, FL
I am a seasoned-returning-student studying Professional and Technical Communication/English at the University of South Florida Sarasota Manatee campus. I anticipate graduating with my B.A. in May of 2021. I received my Associate of Arts from Florida State University in 1989, then went on to work first in the food and beverage industry, then in 2004, to the health insurance sales industry. I always regretted the fact that I did not complete my bachelor's degree.
While reinventing myself – again – I rediscovered my passion for helping others. My focus on those that may be marginalized, lack specific skills or want to improve themselves or our society. When I sold insurance, it was not about me, it was about helping my clients to understand what was available to them, how the products functioned, and finding their needs. As a Dave Ramsey Certified Master Financial Coach, it was the same principle, helping others achieve their dreams and goals.
Combining my passion with my degree, I will be able to pursue avenues such as non-profit work and grant writing. It has already opened doors for me, as I was offered and have accepted a grant writing internship at Selah Freedom in Sarasota, FL. Initially, I applied for a different internship at Selah Freedom. Because of my honesty about my interest in grant writing, they created a grants intern position, and now I am their very first grants intern. I am excited “pave the way” and have also been assigned writing a Grants Intern Manual for Selah Freedom. I am honored to learn grant writing and grant management as well as apply for grants on their behalf.
