Summary of Experience
Beginning his career in health care, Jason understood the role of compassion in society at the age of 16. As a certified nursing assistant, Jason worked across Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico in a variety of health care settings. He spent four years on assignment at a local 625-bed hospital, two years on assignment at a lock-down psychiatric facility, and six years on assignments in skilled nursing facilities. Jason’s experience served as a catalyst for enacting change on a broader scale, and he has come to understand the value in crafting intricate, authoritative pieces for the health care and medical industry.

Jason saw writing as an opportunity to further increase his work on teaching coping skills and correcting problematic behaviors to others. Due to the intensity of his career, Jason possesses direct care and counseling skills. He has participated in a plethora of training sessions, which include certifications in Satori Alternatives for Managing Aggression (SAMA), CPR, Adult, Adolescent, Child, and Infant First Aid, and Adult Mental Health First Aid.

As Jason embarked on his journey towards increasing awareness for mental health problems, Jason began authoring pieces on the role of pets in managing aggression, how business relates to everyday concepts, fictional stories to inspire, and a variety of other topics.

Today, Jason’s work has garnered the attention of national magazines, prestigious websites, and clients from a variety of backgrounds. Yet, his primary goal has remained the same: help one person at a time by showing compassion, knowledge, and devotion through his writing.
Specialties
Although Jason’s specialty focuses on health care topics and addressing emotional distress and crises, Jason has grown increasingly passionate about the role of business in society. As a business owner and the owner of a bird-rescue, Jason continually studies parrots and their behaviors for his weekly submissions to major pet forms and ways to change the lives of those in need. He has found many of the behaviors of parrots are comparable to human emotions, such as the desire to connect with others on an emotional level, and this concept is realized throughout much of his work.
Jason reads the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and New York Times every morning to ensure he stays up-to-date on topics concerning the state of the economy.
Interests
Many of Jason's interests revolve around the outdoors. Jason shares his home with a Quaker Parrot and a Miniature Yorkie, but his home is routinely filled with the sounds of many lost, ill, and abandoned birds. Jason has written a 110-page manual on for those who want to help birds find forever homes. Although a vital part of modernity, Jason believes caring, honest, and thoughtful words play a stronger role in society than electronic devices. Above all else, Maya Angelou's words inspire all of Jason's pieces, "Words are things."
