Samantha Dane
Health Systems Management

"This experience has contributed to my everyday life and future in more ways that I could have anticipated. [...] This experience will help me in applying for jobs post graduation. I would like to work hands on with a vulnerable population. I think the population I would most like to work with is low income women, possibly whom have experienced homelessness or abuse. While this population is much different from the population at Misercordia, the skills I am developing now will better prepare me. I am learning how to communicate with people who have a difficult time expressing themselves and their needs. I am also learning how to work with a professional staff to develop care plans for clients. This will help me create a care and action plan for women in the future. This position is also helping me to develop professional skills, such as emailing, note taking, and how to present my ideas to my supervisor."
