Ms. Tish Brookins,
I recently moved to Louisville to complete my Masters in Social Work with Spalding University.
I would like to request the opportunity to work with Olmsted Academy South YSC as part of my practicum.
Before being called to active duty in 2010 I completed my Bachelor’s degree in counseling with emphasis on post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I believe the combinations of training, education, and life experiences I have had qualify me for most positions, whether they be clerical, housekeeping or personal or personnel care and management.
