Isaac Sunderland's Summary

I have been described as a “professional volunteer.” Most of my career has been spent working with non-profit organizations from small schools in the highlands of Fiji to a prestigious museum located in the middle of the Pacific on the beautiful Hawaiian Islands.

I have been a community organizer in the Peace Corps rallying the local villagers to care more for the environment and develop a comprehensive waste management strategy. I wrote a grant and managed multiple volunteers to renovate a high school school library.

At the Joseph F. Rock Herbarium, I worked closely with the Collections Manager to digitize years of research into a searchable format on the Internet. I typed thousands of records of lichen data into a Microsoft Excel Database. I scanned and converted using OCR software three separate Flora (books that describe plants).

My last job had me working as part of a development team in support of funding Bishop Museum. Working behind the scenes, I was responsible for managing the membership database using the industry standard Raiser’s Edge database software.

If your interested in a meeting a person who is both precise and detail-oriented, please email me at sunderli@gmail.com.
