C. Brooks

Training and development specialist, with special skills in new hire orientation, development of work processes, and team member training on new software and systems, has strong analytical skills and a great ability to connect with diverse learning and communication styles. Experience includes a successful track record in increasing employee productivity, creating effective training procedure manuals and course materials, and building teams that value excellent cross-functional working relationships.

I graduated with my B.S. in Community and Justice Studies with a minor in Human Resource Management with high honors in 2011. I am most proud of working full-time, maintaining my family unit, and attending college at night. It took me 5 and ½ years, but I never gave up, even when life’s situations turned up the heat! I have worked extensively in the property and casualty insurance field in a variety of administrative and leadership positions. My recent classroom experiences include 2 teaching assistant posts during my undergraduate studies and tutoring local immigrants for their citizenship test. In the past, I have served as an AmeriCorps Education Assistant at a local consumer credit counseling agency. I am now employed teaching adult financial literacy classes in the surrounding community and financially counseling individuals one-on-one.  I have also had the past opportunity to serve as a campus tour guide, student government vice-president, and mentor for my undergraduate school. I am now attending Walden University as an instructional design and technology graduate student.

What makes me unique is that I am passionate about adult learning and community outreach. I see today’s adult learner as The New School Adult. To me, this is a person who is being thrown into the new mix of learning and is not afraid to explore the unknown in order to create a better quality of life for themselves and others around them. They are not totally abandoning the good old-fashioned methods of growing up and learning, but they do realize they have to get with the new! As an ongoing adult student of learning and training, I want to offer adult learners a fresh way of looking at how to integrate learning and technology to meet their immediate needs.
