Dear Hiring Manager:

I am a motivated self-starter who never turns down a challenge. My stellar work ethic is expressed by my promptness and dependability. I have great respect for authority and can work independently or as part of a group. I believe a positive attitude and pleasant environment are workplace essentials. My career has given me experience working in the corporate and healthcare fields.

My work at Touchette Regional Hospital, Kindred Rehab Services, Quantum Vision Centers and Aperion Care of Mascoutah strengthened my communication and arbitration skills, as well as my project management and organizational skills. These strengths were made during the years I worked in the medical field. Great initiatives can be accomplished through teamwork and effective communication. I strive to communicate in a way that makes people feel important and understood.

Professional development is important to me. I strengthen my knowledge base by staying current with new developments in my field. I attend seminars to stay abreast of the new developments in physical therapy and to maintain my license requirements for Illinois and Missouri.

I look forward to meeting you and learning more about your organization. Please call or email me, so we can explore how we might partner to fill your needs with my professional abilities.

Sincerely,

Janel Surmeier
