My adult life working experiences were gained through twenty-five years laboring behind the scenes in a large hospital facility's laboratory. I realized during that time, how well I worked with a diverse group of people and had been viewed by others as the peacemaker. I wanted to have face to face interaction with people, which is one of the reasons I enter in the field of Dispute Resolution. Mediation and Negotiations are skills we learn collegiately, and innately I had the gift to help others learned to empower themselves and to collaboratively work among a diverse group of people to resolve conflict. Through facilitation of communication among others, trust building, listening impartially, gave the gift of understanding through another's lens as they viewed their conflict. Most important, is empowering people to resolve conflict that is best for all concerned parties, instead of an unknown outsider making a decision based on what the majority of society does. My goal is to hear their voices and facilitate communication, build a working relationship to resolve their civil, healthcare, and domestic relations disputes. Looking forward to moving towards a positive future.
Exceptional use of my analytical problem solving skills and previous experience within the hospital setting to collaborate with parties to enhance the opportunity to obtain a sustainable solution.
