Allen Mortuary

Apprentice Embalmer

I was on call multiple nights a week and made mandatory evening transfers. I embalmed and performed dressings, casketing, and cosmetics. I had the opportunity to frequently practice restorative art. I worked services, drove hearse, limos and flower vehicles. I had some experience making arrangements, and performed follow up tasks for other directors. I assisted in the crematory and helped out at our on site flower shop. I made memorial DVDs from photos and music provided by families. I also made custom memorial folders and bookmarks. I also video recorded services upon request and created DVDs of the service.

Emanuel Medical Center

Volunteer

While in high school I participated in a nursing ROP, which consisted of three hours of volunteer work at the local hospital, Emanuel Medical Center, every weekday. As a result of this experience I am comfortable in hospital settings and familiar with protocol which has been an asset when working with nursing staff during transfers.
