Creative, multi-lingual and resourceful leader interested in diversifying my work experiences. During the last 15 years living abroad, I worked in the DoD Child and Youth Program Services arena, at NATO and U.S. Military bases in three countries. During this time I developed excellent leadership and supervisory skills, complimenting my already excellent communication and interpersonal skills. Recently completing a Human Resources Management degree, I am excited to discover an opportunity to combine already existing skills with my newly obtained HR expertise in an interesting and challenging new position.
