  1. I am a longtime resident of the DC area, a member of the LGBTQ community and a staunch advocate of The DC Center and all of the vitally important work that your organization has done (past and present). My objective is to achieve my passion of assisting the LGBTQ community in a professional environment and believe that the skills that I have developed would be ideally suited for the Community Engagement Specialist position. In addition to the Bachelors Degree that I have attained in xxxxxxxxxx and xxxxxxxxx I have extensive experience in providing exemplary client-centered services in a variety of fields (albeit in a non-healthcare environment), have developed excellent communication skills (both written and verbal), am adept at marketing/business development and representing organizations in professional environments with an unwavering focus on exceeding the expectations of each client. I believe this is most effectively achieved with a superior work ethic and being a team player with a positive mindset and organizational/time management skills while simultaneously focusing on meeting the goals of both the individual client as well as the organization by utilizing my exceptional attention to detail, presentation abilities and listening skills.
    I would welcome the opportunity to discuss with you in greater detail how my experience and strengths would contribute to the long term needs of both The DC Center, your valued clients and the LGBTQ community as a whole. I can be reached at (xxx) xxx-xxxx or via email at Thank you in advance for your valued time and consideration.
