Accomplishments 

UNT Digital Projects Unit- As a digital imaging assistant I was able to help out with the special project that was given to us by the  Texas Historical Commission. This project contained more than 2,000 negatives that needed to be digitized and I was given the opportunity to help scan and edit the negatives. 

Name Brand Clothing- As a sales associate I was able to be key holder for about a year and a half. I was given the responsibility to close the store on Friday nights and open the store on Saturday mornings. I was responsible for counting the tills and making sure there was proper change in all of them. I was in charge of running the store and for seeing a group of 4 employees  until the evening manager arrived.
