IN CLOSING . . .

I strongly believe that my past experience and the invaluable skills I have obtained over time make me a strong candidate for preferably a Personal Assistant / Office Management role, but I know I’m adequately skilled for Administrative, Service, Sales, and Client Liaison orientated roles. My instinctive, sincere, caring nature has attributed to my passion, patience and empathy for working with people from all walks of life. These qualities extend to every area of my life . . . particularly my children, family and friends. I thrive with challenge and want to know that I add value to my working environment.
