Hello everyone, I am Jamie Kelley and I live in Atlanta, GA. I am currently working as an intern at The nsoro Educational Foundation and Carrie Steele Pitts Home as an ILP Life Skills worker. I graduated from Georgia Gwinnett College with my B.S. in Human Development & Aging Services. I am currently attending American Intercontinental University getting my MBA, in Healthcare Management. My goal is to work for the Emory Healthcare facility as a healthcare manager, specifically collaborating with the elderly community.
I join CARES because I will have the opportunity to make a change politically within the foster care system for the better of youths aging out of the foster care system, by advocating, while teaming with organizations like the CARES program. It is important for older youth transitioning out of foster care to gain the best things from resources, support, and knowledge to gain self-sufficiency.
When I am not working, or advocating for current and former foster youths, you can find me traveling and making memories with my love.
