Background

I am a native Tulsan, with a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Tulsa. I am currently a paralegal, a position I have been in for the last 7 years, including the last five at my current position. I am looking to move to the corporate environment to allow more availability as my daughter begins middle school and extracurricular activities. I am a fast learner, reliable, willing to adapt and help in any way possible. I am hoping for employment in a position that will continue to push me to be at my best. I also want to work in a place where I can feel like part of a team that works together; while also gaining the opportunity to continue my own professional growth. The reputation of QuikTrip is obviously well known throughout not only this area, but the entire country. I would love to be a part of that team.
