Can I use am as written in this sentence below?

I am certain that I can make a positive contribution to the Medical Enterprise Center at the Downers Hospital, given my diverse background, and am sure that a rich exchange will take place.


The separation between "I" and the second "am" is too great in this case, in my opinion. It is not exactly wrong but it feels strained.

Either use "I'm" or write "I am" in full.
