Intern Kyndra Enjoys Growthful Experience
Kyndra has volunteered two semesters as a team member of SeniorServ’s Meals on Wheels program.
“Professionally and personally, it’s been amazing! I’ve learned a whole lot.”
Kyndra’s experience volunteering as an intern at SeniorServ has increased her knowledge in many ways but her favorite acquired skill has been building meaningful rapports with SeniorServ clients during home visits.
Kyndra has learned that humor and laughter break barriers. “We talk and laugh together,” said Kyndra. Meeting with clients one-on-one has taught me how to connect with them and help them feel comfortable from the first time we meet.”
Senior Case Manager Juber noted, “Kyndra has a natural ability to communicate and connect with seniors and staff. I have no doubt that she will be an excellent professional in the field of aging.”
Through this internship Kyndra has enjoyed the opportunity to apply her classroom knowledge. “My experience has been so rewarding, I hope to inspire others to volunteer and intern at SeniorServ in order to improve our community and the well-being of seniors.”
