Microsoft Office

Experience in Microsoft Word, Access, Excel and PowerPoint. Database skills, e-mails, telephone etiquette, web browsers, preparing purchase requisitions, disbursement vouchers, departmental transfer authorization, travel expense forms, preparing reports, maintaining inventory, purchase office supplies as well as  maintaining budget records.  I have excellent written and oral communications skills and a strong interpersonal quality.  Experience in several offices gave me the capacity to achieve strong problem-solving skills and to work independently as well as with a team.

During the time I have been laid off, I'm taking on-line classes to receive my Bachelor's degree in Technical Management.  I also volunteer at Retrouvaille. Retrouvaille is a organization that help couples who are having problems in their marriages.
