Objective:To enhance and add a valuable asset to the right company.

I am hard worker with a strong work ethic and a mature, no-nonsense attitude. The bulk of my experience lies in the warehouse industry. I have several years experience in many facets of warehousing, including: shipping/receiving, stock replenishment, order selection/packing, loading/unloading and inventory analysis. I have worked for UPS, GE Lighting, Dollar Tree and Lillian Vernon, to name a few. I have operated (with certification) many types of machinery including: standard forklift, high lift forklift, cherry-picker, swing-reach, etc., in both wire-guided electrical and propane-powered formats. Always among the top few in production status, I am a team player who excels at performing required duties in a timely and efficient manner. I have also served on the safety committee at Dollar Tree Distribution in Chesapeake.
