Student Advocate, Diversity Leader (Current Employee) – Bristol, RI – June 7, 2015
As a student, it is often hard to balance work with school but at Roger Williams, I am able to do this with the help and support of my professors and supervisors.

Prep Cook (Current Employee) – Bristol, RI – March 18, 2015
A typical day at work, would be multiple employees of Roger Williams, performing tasks such as prepping meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the upcoming week(s). Employees are all separated into different departments in the kitchen to get all the tasks done on time. Working at Roger Williams University, I have learned more about time efficiency and how to multi-task more than I already knew how, I also learned a lot of basic knowledge about prep cooking. The management at Roger Williams University is fantastic. If an employee or even another manager needs an answer or help with anything, top of the line management is right there with the correct and most efficient answer. My coworkers are Roger Williams University is no joke, considering just about everyone there loves their job, all tasks get done in a timely order with the help of others from all around. The hardest part of the job is keeping up with what needs to be done, whether it's getting a cleaning task done on time, or actually getting any task done on time, considering all the different jobs going on at once that most employees can handle. Just about anything is enjoyable about being a prep cook at Roger Williams. The different types of food being prep, the techniques to perform a task faster and more efficient is fun to learn.

Professor's Assistant (Former Employee) – Bristol, RI – January 19, 2015
Collaborated with a small team of marine biology students to maintain all fish tanks in the lab and keep logs books of when species were fed and when tanks were cleaned. Many daily tests included chemical and pH balance assessments. Other responsibilities were to assemble various shellfishery apparatuses (floating and standing upwellers, drifters, screens, tanks etc) and collect oysters and quahogs biweekly from the Mount Hope Bay to perform analyses for measuring growth of specimens and record specific data. Shellfish data reports encompassed the mass, width and length of bivalves before and after a process that requires the specimen to be dried out. Final step in the process is to send gonadal specimens for further research at other facilities for reproduction counts. Final recordings show that the re-introduction of more bivalves in the Mt. Hope Bay has had an incredibly positive impact on the cleanliness of the water.

When not with a student, there was plenty of spare time to work on my own projects or homework.
