Current and Former Volunteer or Board Roles
Most recently, I performed research and analysis for the Veteran’s Service Corps based out of South Dakota. The research was based upon gathering and verification of donor contact information. Prior to serving with the Veteran’s Service Corps, I volunteered at St. Susan’s Soup Kitchen in Jamestown, NY, where I assisted executive staff with desktop PC assistance, networked storage devices, and malware remediation.
