Professional Summary

I am a young professional on the beginning of a career path. I have a passion for working with children of all ages with a focus on challenged youth. Not everyone has the patience and/or time to sit, talk and understand the obstacles and mind sets of our current youth. I would like to be able to go further in depth in talking and understanding mentally what challenges they face and why; notwithstanding only the challenges but what they do to succeed and over come said challenges. With more knowledge in this field I see myself being able to not only listen and understand but to also advise and help set goals.
