Professional Statement

As a passionate educator and career/student development professional, my primary goal is to assist others in maximizing their potential and actualizing their goals. With significant experience in both career and student services I actively seek out opportunities to enrich and supplement students'/trainees' academic experiences through well-informed, focused career counseling and the creation/implementation of programming initiatives that meet the unique developmental needs of each population I have the chance to work with. In that, I make myself available as a resource for resume/CV editing, interview preparation, job search assistance, professional communication/correspondence, personal branding, and any other topics that help ensure that all trainees have the skills and competencies necessary to secure a fulfilling, rewarding career upon graduation or completion of their studies.

I also make a conscious effort to engage with the communities that I live and work in just as much as I invest into the futures of the students/trainees. To that end, I have served as a Board Member with the T.W. Davis YMCA in Rosenberg, TX and I make myself available to various groups throughout inner city Houston geared towards developing young, minority male leaders.
