My Brother's "Grumpy Grampy"
So, I got home from work today and got a call from my older brother wanting to know if I knew where mom and dad were... he sounded pretty anxious. I told him mom was in class and dad should be at home and asked him what was wrong - He told me his grandpa had passed away. It was a pretty big shock to hear although I hadn't seen him in years. He and Matt were very close and I remember his grandpa always signed his cards to Matt "Love, Grumpy Grampy". I was very young the last time I spent time with him, but I remember him always being super nice and very funny. There's not going to be a funeral, but Matt, Stephanie and James are coming up tomorrow to spend some time with our families.
Throughout my late adolescense and adulthood, I have had many positions (professionally and volunteer basis) that have helped me develop skills necessary to serve as a liaison to the community on behalf of a professional organization. I have spent many years in various organizations which have helped me grow skills such as public speaking, note taking, and scheduling. I am proficient in organization and mediation – always keeping the mindset of finding middle ground and while meeting the needs of those involved. I excel in the area of community outreach and thrive in situations where I am given reign to be creative and managerial. I am committed to achieving the best outcome and feel I have many fantastic qualities to contribute to any organization.
