VOLUNTEERISM

I'm very passionate about working with non-profit groups, spending much of my spare time working with others. Typically, I take leadership positions in charities which includes recruiting volunteers; overseeing major events with many moving parts; managing budgets; developing curriculum; traveling globally to train volunteers; attending weekend talent 

development workshops; developing responsive websites; implementing marketing and social media strategies; managing internal and external communications; setting organizational goals; working on media teams; producing videos for global fundraising effort; creating and launching a major charitable initiative to motivate members; launching the new parents group for a new international school in Singapore and developing annual programs. I secretly crave a position where I can combine my love of volunteerism with my career.
