I moved to the Austin area in May, 2010 from Australia where I spent the prior five

years. I am currently retired but would like to move into a semi-retired status. I

have had a variety of jobs in the management and professional area. I am now

looking for a part time position. I realize that any such position will likely be more

administrative or clerical in nature. I am mature and professional in my execution

of any position and work hard to ensure both customers internal or external and

associates are eager to work with me. I am responsible, prompt, accurate,

i nterested in learning new skills and my organizational skills are exemplary.
