As a mediator with a background in liberal studies, a minor in justice and human resources, and years of experience as a Broker in real estate brings a unique set of skills and knowledge to the field. Here's how this background can contribute to my role as a mediator:

Communication and Negotiation Skills: A degree in liberal studies equips you with strong communication and critical thinking skills. These skills are crucial in mediating disputes, as you need to facilitate productive dialogue between parties and help them reach mutually beneficial agreements.

Understanding of Justice and Human Resources: My minor in justice and human resources provides a valuable understanding of legal principles, conflict resolution techniques, and the human aspect of disputes. This knowledge can help me navigate complex issues and ensure fairness throughout the mediation process.

Real Estate Expertise: With 39 years of experience as a Broker in real estate, I possess in-depth knowledge of the industry. This expertise can be particularly valuable when mediating disputes related to real estate transactions, property disputes, or landlord-tenant conflicts. My understanding of real estate laws, regulations, and market dynamics can help parties find practical and equitable resolutions.

Healthcare Licensing: Having a license with United Healthcare indicates that I have knowledge and experience in the healthcare industry. This can be beneficial in mediating disputes related to healthcare, insurance claims, or medical negligence cases, where understanding the nuances of the industry is crucial.

In conclusion, my unique background equips me with the necessary skills, knowledge, and empathy to excel as a mediator. Through my diverse experiences, I have developed strong communication skills, a deep understanding of cultural nuances, and the ability to navigate complex interpersonal dynamics. My analytical thinking, impartiality, and commitment to fairness allow me to approach disputes with an open mind and seek innovative solutions that satisfy all parties involved. With a genuine passion for fostering harmony and facilitating constructive dialogue, I am confident that my background will make me a highly effective mediator, capable of resolving conflicts and promoting peaceful resolutions in a variety of contexts.
