"I feel successful when I have matched dogs and cats with the best owners. It feels good to take the time to prepare new owners with as much information as possible to help them care for their new pet. I also feel successful when the volunteers I have trained feel confident in handling animals. I spend a lot of time investing in my team and I feel like a success when everything runs smoothly."

"When I was waiting tables at a restaurant, I would always roll the silverware and wipe down the tables every time I started my shift. My boss never had to ask me to sweep the floor or remind me of my daily duties because I was always on top of things. People enjoyed working with me because I had such a positive attitude and I worked hard. I always offered to cover shifts and make myself available to my coworkers for support when they needed it."
