Resume:

January **, ****

To Whom It May Concern:

Attached please find a copy of my professional resume.

As you can see from my attached resume, I have been a nurse for several years and have had numerous management positions in a variety of clinical settings.

I have worked more than 7 years in the Quality and Regulatory department, working with customers as well as field personnel. My extensive clinical and management experience in the Peri-Operative arena has provided me with the necessary qualifications to focus on the education needs of anesthesia customers, both nursing and medical. This, in turn, will allow me to apply product and clinical knowledge to troubleshoot and help solve problems. I will be able to support customers in the utilization and understanding of their systems, as well as establish and maintain strong working relationships with key internal partners and customers.

I hope that my desire to make a difference inspires you to offer me this position. References are available upon request.

I remain sincerely yours,

Lois Giegerich
