Vice President of Education (Current Employee) – Oshkosh, WI – July 10, 2018
Our biweekly meetings are crucial to our development as individuals and as a whole club. Although I just started attending club meetings this year, I've improved on: time-management skills, scheduling, organization, and have owned my professional autonomy skills.
Member Services Supervisor (Former Employee) – Rancho Santa Margarita, CA – June 6, 2018
I really enjoyed my time here. However, like most call centers it is full of drama. Management is just as bad as the representatives in that there is a no support supervisors from senior leaders. Just plan on going to work and doing your job. Steer clear of attempting to build rapport. Stay focused and r job and you MAY be fine if they like you enough.
Administrative Assistant/HMIS Coordinator (Former Employee) – 811 Wilshire Blvd Los Angeles, CA – April 16, 2018
Considering the nature of my position at LAHSA, I lead a very critical role in my department and to the organization as a whole. I found my work very fulfilling and I would do it all over again. The management team support my advancement and my two promotions based on merit. I implemented several systems within the deprtment allowing it to function more efficient and produce more accurate reports. My workplace was stressful at times, however my staff and management team had my support as much as I received from them in return.

Secretary (Current Employee) – Richardson, TX – March 21, 2018
Improved my leadership and communication skills. Initially I didn't had confidence to give an impromptu speech in front of audience. Time and practice in toastmaster's meeting gave a boost in my confidence. I am a better speaker now.

I've been part of the officer team for over a year and my public speaking skills alongside many others around me have improved drastically and continue to improve as we put more effort into our speech craft.
District Officer (Current Employee) – Oregon – August 4, 2017
Toastmasters International is a worldwide organization comprised of individual clubs where you can develop your leadership and communication skills. The plan is self-driven, so you can go at your own pace as quickly or slowly as you are comfortable. While public speaking is part of the Toastmasters program, it is not required that you speak immediately or at every meeting. It's all about developing your existing skills and expanding your comfort zone.
There is no failing in Toastmasters. It's one of the most supportive environments out there!
