"Get and stay out of your comfort zone." - Bob Parsons GoDaddy.com CEO No other advice has stuck with me more than this quote from a blog I read many years ago now. It changed the way I approach my life, my career. As humans we are prone to reach for our security blanket, to find our comfort zone and stay in it. If you want to grow as a person, to see your full potential though, you need to push yourself. Take chances and be all that you can be. In June of 2001 after completing my Computer Service Technician Diploma from Burridge Campus I began my professional career as an Internet industry professional in the domain name/webhosting/web design/SEO industry. Specializing in sales, support, account management, project management, and leadership for nine and a half years. In June of 2011 I stepped out of my comfort zone and began the second stage of my career, this time in the automotive industry, selling new and pre-owned vehicles for Toyota. In addition to this I help build our social media presence, help manage our company website, assists with on-air radio promotions, and am a founding member of our Health and Safety Committee. In addition to my employment experience, I felt I needed more. I wanted to experience and learn more so I decided to use my people and leadership skills for a good cause. From February of 2011 to July 2012 I was the Chairman (Volunteer) of the Yarmouth Relay For Life Event. Managing a committee of 25-30 volunteers year round in the planning of the annual event. This is the single biggest fundraising event for the Canadian Cancer Society. I am continuously looking to grow as an individual, always seeking opportunities to broaden my knowledge and skills.
As a professional in the nonprofit sector, my goal is to start my career as a self-employed non-profit consultant. As outlined below and in my resume, my current and past work experience and career accomplishments will lend seamlessly to being successful with various roles and tasks in non-profits and the business sector. Perhaps the most significant experience is my present role as a Director of Development. When I joined the organization, fundraising endeavors were minimal as there was no staff to facilitate activities. Over the past three years, I have obtained over $2 million in grant funding, and a substantial amount was from new funders or funding streams. I also established a large signature event; this event created relationships with 200 plus sponsors and donors, hundreds of volunteers, and brought nearly $100,000 in donated advertising to the agency. While the organization has always had a solid reputation with existing donors and partner agencies, the organization was not well-known to the general public. Therefore, under my direction, a new marketing plan and branding strategy has been designed and continues to be implemented, allowing the organization’s good works to be shared with the masses. As the Assistant Program Director at a developing girls’ emotional growth boarding school, I aided in the development of the school’s vital elements and applying for licensure at the state level. With minimal supervision and guidance, I created the level system program in which students would follow upon admission, as well as wrote policies and procedures that would allow the organization to function properly. Because I was involved in the development process, this allowed me to collaborate with local organizations, businesses, and government officials to ensure that the standards and guidelines for operation would be fulfilled. Also, as a school social worker, I gained substantial experience in working with youth and families, as my primary responsibilities were to offer assistance with student concerns through individual sessions, group work, and classroom education. I carried a case load of 30 students who are seen on a weekly basis. Also, I facilitated well-known character education programs, such as Second Step and Owning Up, to every classroom at least once per month. One major accomplishment is the creation and execution of the character education campaign, “Follow My Lead,” which led to the “Word of the Month” and classroom instruction based from the word, a praise path, character awards, and several other pieces that were successful and well received. Furthermore, my diverse, first-class education supplied me with a wealth of knowledge and skills to thrive in any workplace. My undergraduate studies at Southern Illinois University imparted a solid foundation in social work, including excellent communication abilities, research and analysis proficiency, and human behavior and tendencies. Likewise, University of Georgia catered to my interest in community work and non-profit organizations by providing expertise in management, development, creativity and innovation, and outreach. In addition to my work experience, I believe my education background would be an asset to any organization.
