THE STORY:

 I'm the Communications Associate for BIAMI. If you've seen a Facebook post or a Tweet,  chances are, I'm responsible for it. Have you seen any changes to the site you like? That's my handy work. Anything on Instagram is also me. For me, BIAMI isn't a job or a source of income; I mean it is a job I get paid for, but it's much more than that.
After graduating with my Master's degree, I struggled to find a job. My dream was to work handling the communications activities for a non-profit. My job hunt was compounded by the fact that I not only have epilepsy, but I have had a couple concussions (and damage to my brain detecible with an MRI to this day) as a result of seizures. Nearly three years after graduating, I had gone through a couple low paying jobs and was working at a Lowes in a seasonal position. I felt that I had worked so hard for nothing, that my life was stuck on hold. That was until I applied for this position with BIAMI.
When they offered me this job, I felt so empowered, that my work and persistance paid off and my life could start. BIAMI has allowed me to have my dream job and I can help serve people like myself, people who struggle and have a few extra burdens most live without. That is why BIAMI is important to me and why I believe it is important to the community. BIAMI helps people get their life moving again and I feel incredibily lucky to play a small role in that.
