Work History

Office Manager

Parkway Automotive

This was a proving ground of sorts for all of the skills I previously gained.  I managed accounts receivable, accounts payable, payroll, customer service, created documents for time management, maintained paperwork, among various other tasks.  I considered this a fun and challenging job.  It was my first opportunity to work as a professional, and it was my first opportunity to stretch my technical muscles professionally.

Office Assistant

J.P. Sorrows, LLC

My brother-in-law began his own business in 2008 and found that he needed an office assistant to complete certain computer-oriented projects.  This job called on skills varying from graphic-design to Excel worksheets and Word documents.  I thoroughly LOVED this job as I was able to stretch my creative and technical abilities at the same time. Unfortunately, this opportunity came to an abrupt end when he was injured in a near-fatal accident in July of 2008.
