From the numerous positions working directly in customer service and communications, I understand how essential it is to be professional at all times in the work environment. I have developed skills to thrive in chaotic work environments while multi tasking efficiently to complete all tasks assigned to me. It has been my responsibility to be a leader who can listen to others but still feel confident in making decisions and working alone or with colleagues. It is paramount to manage time properly and politics has trained me to be the most efficient with tight deadlines. I am able to quickly respond to public enquires with effective and efficiency while promoting and solving the public’s concerns. I am able to think quickly on my feet and more than willing to take on new roles and learn, grow and expand my knowledge and skills.
