                                                                                 Volunteering

Since the beginning of 2016 I have contributed over 200 hours of volunteer work for Goodwill Industries of South Texas, United Way of South Texas, and  the Tip of Texas Family Outreach Center. While most of the things I did in college involved volunteer work I still went out of my way to do volunteer work on my own - such as volunteering each Christmas at least 15-20 hours a year donating gifts to children. I love volunteer work and even do some of my services pro-bono (but we can talk more about that).
