Current job: Development Associate at Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley
Major at EMU: Public Relations with minors in Nonprofit Administration and Marketing
I chose to get the Certified Nonprofit Professional credential because I wanted something that was going to give me an upper hand in the nonprofit sector. The NLA requires an internship for the CNP credential, and for me, that internship turned into a full-time job at Habitat for Humanity. I love meeting our homeowners and hearing how their life is impacted by homeownership.
My favorite part of being in the NLA was that it gave me a chance to explore the nonprofit world before I entered the field. I loved being a part of this organization and I learned a lot when I attended AMI.
