Undergraduate Studies ePortfolio Ms. Johnny Laird Psychology, 2012 1
Personal StatementMy name is Johnny Laird. I was born and raised native Texan. My passion has always been learning and assisting others with finding and acknowledging their true potential. My personality fits well within this passion as I’m a highly task driven, optimistic and energetic individual. I choose to return to college several years ago to expand my knowledge in Effective Communications and Organizational Leadership. My professional career over the last twenty years has been in Healthcare Information Systems Management. I will complete a Bachelors in Psychology by summer of 2012. My next step professionally will be to continue graduate studies in Effective Leadership coupled with Mastering Project Management Techniques. I truly believe that the key to personal success is to always exercise the mind by continuing to learn. My success will be through the successes others recognize as directly associated with my assistance and/or leadership.
