I am sending my resume to express my interest for the Accounting/bookkeeping position with

your company. I possess the skills, qualifications, and att ributes to complete the tasks needed

and would be a valuable asset to your organization, if given the opportuni ty.

U pon review of my resume, you will see two breaks in service. The most recent break, which

began in 2006, was due to a family medical issue (now resolved), which was then followed by a

necessary relocation back to Phoenix. The other break in service (11/97–10/02) was to care for my

t wo babies, born 11/97 and 1/99.

The short & long-term goals for my future are to re-establish my career and find a workplace to

call home. I am experienced in all phases of accounting and have worked in several different

i ndustries. If there is a software program that I have not worked with, I am a very fast learner

w ho takes excellent notes, so as not to repeatedly ask the same questions.

Solid references can be provided from all of the companies listed or referenced on my resume. My

education consists of completion of the Accounting program at Hawaii Business College in

Honolulu, HA. This was a 66 credit program which focused primarily on bookkeeping and

accounting. The credit load is equivalent to an Associate’s Degree. I t’s not included on my

resume as it would have run into a 2nd page just to list this information.

FYI, the phone number listed with the (702) prefix is correct. I still have my cell number from

Vegas as I’ve had that number for so long. Please leave a message if there is no answer or

contact me via email at .

I look forward to speaking with you regarding my background and how I can be of assistance to

your company.
