Work Experience

Work Experience
Pre-Orientation Peer Connections Program (PCPOP) at Grinnell College, Student Mentor
2019 - Present
As a PCPOP Mentor, my first role was to take part in organizing, planning, and leading events and programming for a week-long orientation for around 30 first-year students. After the week of orientation, I was given two mentees that I meet with on a regular basis to make myself a resource for them should they need help academically, socially, emotionally, etc. My main role as mentor is to help the first-years navigate this new environment and help them build a support network.
Otero Prada LLC, Painting Instructor Assistant
2018 - Present
When in St. Louis, I work for Otero Prada LLC, which puts on art instructional sessions for organizations and individuals. I serve as an assistant to Luisa Otero, the founder and owner of Otero Prada LLC. My responsibilities include tending to the needs of those we are teaching, giving constructive advice, and making sure the session goes smoothly.
Grinnell College Sociology Department, Introduction to Sociology Course Assistant
2019 - 2020
As a course assistant, I attended class with 15 students and met with them on a regular basis to either go over content from class or assist in the writing process. I could help develop a thesis, create an outline, organize an essay, and offer feedback on drafts. I also led a few workshops outside of class to help develop presentation, outlining, and writing skills.
SCOPE, Communications Project Manager
2016 - 2017
One of my roles as Communications Project Manager at SCOPE, a St. Louis based nonprofit, was to help organize and participate in various outreach events around St. Louis (Fair St. Louis and Taste of St. Louis, for example) that served upwards of 1,000 people. At these events, I managed volunteers as well as work the booths, including an educational stand that introduced children of all ages to simple biological concepts like DNA through a fun and interactive demonstration.
