Teaching Assistant; Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – May 13, 2016
Difficult to assess objectively given my role as a doctoral student researcher and teaching assistant.

Social Clinical Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Pittsboro, NC – January 26, 2016
While working for the University of North Carolina, I worked one on one with clients that were previously diagnosed with a variety of intellectual disabilities, specializing specifically with autism disorder. I got to know my co-workers and clients very well and even still, I maintain communication with them as often as I can. Working at the Carolina Living and Learning Center, I learned a great deal of what it means to be an individual and that just like any neurotypical thinking person, individuals with autism have specific needs, likes, dislikes, hobbies, fears, and passions just the same as any one else. It is just the details that we focus on that makes us individuals in the first place. The biggest challenge in being in this field of work would have to be the occasional violent outbursts from the clients. It is typically easy to tell if these outbursts are about to happen just by observing usual signs of aggressive behavior, but there have been a few times where the outbursts resulted in me being momentarily hospitalized. All in all, there was never a dull moment working at this facility and I would't trade the experience for anything.
Building strong relationships with the clients as well as staff.
Dealing with occasional violent outbursts.Some that even resulted in me being hospitalized.
