Austin, Texas 78752


I am a highly experienced secretary that has been working in the administrative field since 1994. I am energetic individual with a strong and professional work ethic. I enjoy working with people as well as working with co-workers. I strive to produce a good work product and I work well under pressure with little supervision. My bosses have always depended on my good eye for attention to detail to proof their work and I am confident in my work abilities to get the job done to the best of my ability. Instead of missing deadlines and appointments, I work very hard at staying organized and I make sure that all calendars are updated. I enjoy working hard and I take great pride in my work. I am eager to join a company that is looking for someone with my many years of experience as well as many life experiences. My goal is to grow upward with a company and look only towards a great working relationship that will be permanent and long lasting.
