I work autonomously, receiving a minimum amount of direct supervision. I use independent judgment to analyze situations and make decisions on optimum correction and prevention methods. I am able to deal effectively with a variety of personalities and remain calm when multiple high priority events occur simultaneously. I am able to indentify and diffuse diverse situations and initiate immediate corrective action. I have over 20 years of Management experience, and I am excited to know that we can work together to help make a difference.
