I am a hardworking, fast paced learner with years of Infrastructure Design including 3 years of Project Management experience. I have accumulated over 15 years of intensive, hands-on experience working in the public sector 4 years with the Tennessee Department of Transportation and with Texas Department of Transportation, also including 11 years in the private consulting sector. By being exposed to both the public and private sectors, my engineering knowledge encompassed a professional career which I value dearly. Over the past 3 years I have experienced a few challenges in my family life that caused me and my family to be set back, but through perseverance I’ve gained more confidence while maintaining my career with excellence.

Utilizing my bachelor’s degree, EIT certification, and volunteering experience, I can now offer:

Firsthand experience in operations, construction, quality systems and designing to include the design process, testing materials, and applying engineering principles.

The ability to adapt to change and multi-task while managing several projects and teams at a time. Versatility, ability to learn hastily and do the work of a dependable manager of multiple offices and staffs.

Aptitude for solving problems and maintaining a strong work environment.

Excellent verbal and written communication skills.

A willingness to travel.

Additional qualifications are listed in the attached resume. Should you have any questions, I can be reached at 214-***-**** during or after business hours.

I look forward to the opportunity to further discuss my skills and ready to bring your company outstanding services to your clients. Thank you for your consideration.
