During my year as GM, sales increased from about $800/week to above $5,000/week and our online presence grew about three-fold.
I managed a Meals On Wheels-affiliated activity center for underprivileged senior citizens in metro Atlanta. My duties included overseeing general daily operations of the center, planning monthly trips and activities that would edify and increase the quality of life of my group of seniors, and working with both the Meals on Wheels nonprofit program and Fulton County government to provide a safe and healthy environment for the participants. In addition, I was in charge of a staff of four people, gained experience in nonprofit management and funding, and worked directly with county-level government officials.

As a trip leader I helped plan, organize, and execute the trips and carry out follow-up with participants afterwards.
Served as assistant to the coordinator of the SmartGirls and SmartKids programs in two Washington high schools.
