About

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.
