Experience Residential Child Care Worker (4/19/11-Present) Advent Group Ministries (90 Great Oaks Blvd. Ste. 108, San Jose, CA 95119) I am currently living in a group home for teenage boys. I was originally asked to come back temporarily to help until new staff could be trained since I had previously worked there. They have asked me to stay and move to a different position as of June 22. During these last couple months I have helped the staff and clients stay organized and on task during major staff changes. I have been able to use my structure and organizational skills to help the clients feel safe and cared for during a time of big changes. I have helped provide support for new staff as well as old staff while cleaning and repairing the houses and organizing paper work. Advent has asked me to stay on a more permanent basis, but with a new baby on the way I don’t feel like I can make a commitment to continue living on site four days a week without neglecting my family. House Parent (1/21/11 – 3/24/11) Rancho Damacitas (38950 Mesa Rd. Temecula, CA 92592) My wife and I were responsible for providing a loving family environment for six boys ranging in age from nine to seventeen. During our time there we were able to provide the house with better structure, which allowed the boys to feel safer and allowed us to help them work on their behavioral issues and learning disabilities. The clients’ grades as well as school behavior improved drastically, as well as their home behavior. Unfortunately we had to leave after three months due to complications my wife was having due to her pregnancy. After meeting several times with the administration, we decided that it would be in the best interest of the boys to resign our positions and allow a family who could focus more on them to come in and take over.

I was responsible for as many as six teenage guys. I make sure they have three meals a day, get them ready for school, and take them to various Doctors appointments and other meetings. I am also responsible for the upkeep of the home and communicating the clients’ behavior to other house staff, including their caseworker. I was responsible for administering various medications and looking out for the clients well-being. I worked a four day, fifty-four hour work shift with alternating weekend days. During this time I received a promotion to Childcare Worker II along with a pay raise in September of 2010 just before I got married. Originally I had given them my notice as of October 21, 2010 but they were able to provide me with the promotion as well as a four day work schedule that allowed me to continue working full time while my wife finished school. Activities Director (5/12/2009 – 9/16/2009) Kampgrounds of America (1186 San Andreas Dr. Watsonville, CA) I was responsible for planning all activities for the campground. It was my job to make sure that each activity was staffed and flowed smoothly. I was also responsible for obtaining supplies for each activity, maintaining and creating a weekly activity schedule, as well as other maintenance work in between. I was in charge of a team of 8-10 high school and college students to help me staff activities. I scheduled their weekend work shifts and making sure that they were on time, dressed properly, and following company standards. Grill Cook (11/1/2006 – 5/1/2009) Riverside Crab Shack (335 Tuscarora Beach Rd. Winton, NC 27986) I was the main grill and broil cook. I was responsible for communicating to the rest of the kitchen staff the preparation time for side dishes and fried food that would be going with the meal. I also did a weekly walk through of kitchen supplies to place our weekly order. I was responsible for planning new menu ideas and weekly specials. On week days I was the kitchen shift leader and responsible for making sure that everything flowed smoothly and that the kitchen was properly cleaned and sanitized at the end of each shift. Cook/Server/Host (8/3/2003 – 8/7/2006) Pirates Table Restaurant (3536 Carolina Beach Rd. Wilmington, NC) I started working as a server responsible for taking orders, making sure orders were accurate and acceptable, and restocking condiments and cleaning at the end of the shift. I eventually picked up shifts as a host responsible for keeping the cash register accurate and making sure that the customer’s needs were met. I also worked as a line cook for the last year I was there. I was responsible for making sure that the proper items were up at the right time so that the plate setter could have the meals ready for the servers in a timely manner and that the food was hot. Pro Shop Attendant (8/15/02 – 5/1/03) White Sands Golf Course (4723 US Highway 701 N, Elizabethtown, NC 28337) I worked part time as the Pro Shop Attendant. I was responsible for opening and closing the Pro Shop, running the cash register, and making sure that golf carts were outside ready for customers. I was also responsible for stocking and pricing merchandise, cooking hot dogs, restocking snacks and drinks. I was laid off at the beginning of the summer of 2003 due to the golf courses financial problems. Website Designer (1/15/2001 – 4/30/01) Unique Web Designs(198 Timberlodge Village White Lake, NC) From January of 2001 to the end of April of 2001 I did freelance web design. I did one full website as well as the updating of several websites. I was responsible for updating the information on the web pages, changing color schemes and adding new layouts and designs. I became familiar with various computer programs such as MS Frontpage, Xara, and learned some basic HTML programming. Unfortunately business was slow and by the end of April I had to begin looking for more permanent work.
