Major: Health Professions As an intern within the Hauenstein Center, I was privileged to provide care for a diverse population of patients suffering from a variety of medical issues. Most of my daily tasks consisted of working with patients by taking vital signs, providing help with daily activities such as bathing and eating, transferring patients to other units in the hospital, taking blood sugars, and learning how to provide specific care for different diagnoses. Through doing this, I was able to learn the roles of different clinicians on the unit and spend time with physicians, physicians assistants, physical therapists, occupational therapists, pharmacists, registered nurses, health care managers, and nurse technicians.
Major: Advertising & Public Relations While working at Midwest Soccer Academy I got to experience many different aspects of a soccer company. Although my major is Advertising and Public Relations, I was able to gain knowledge in my field, but also many other common office skills. I was able to dip my feet in the promotion side of the company as I set out to business to promote for our tryouts for FC Bolton. I also got to promote by making millions of phone calls to every soccer team in Michigan inviting them to our MSA Fall Classic Soccer Tournament. I got to design the payment forms for our tournaments, as well as being the head of paper work at our FC Bolton Lapeer tryouts. I also got to be the assistant coach for our Kritters� soccer camp and got to be the Director of Whaley's Outreach Program, teaching kids skills that wouldn't ever get the chance to play soccer. My task have ranged, but all of them have helped me grow and understand the work of Advertising and Public Relation and not all my experiences have to be related in my field to help me grow.
Major: Engineering - Electrical I helped wire machines, build machines, create and update schematics, use CAD to design solutions, and helped move a launch product into production. I also was able to learn how to use different electrical equipment and conduct studies directly for our customer.
