"I work at The Doe Fund in New York City. My role is to coordinate the orientation that all men we serve must fulfill in their first 30 days. We have a curriculum that encompasses team building, goal setting, communication and much more. My plans for the future include getting the orientation running at all of the Doe Fund facilities, and continuing to lend a helping hand to whomever may need it in Poughkeepsie, New York City, Philadelphia and anywhere I may travel."
