Interest

I admire those that look to sustain and improve the environment.  I hope to reflect this fondness in my choice of employment.

I enjoy exploring the world by traveling overseas or backpacking and camping in wilderness areas.

Cooking, fitness, nutrition, and reading both non-fiction and fiction are a few of my other interests.

Summary

My most recent position was an administrative assistant for a non-profit company. TEPHINET had a small office and I often worked on projects without direct supervision. Pier 1 imports provided me with great retail and management experience. Training incumbents became my favored role and also helped me fine-tune my communication skills. I am very interested in green jobs and companies committed to helping sustain the environment.

Objective

To obtain a job in the human resources sector, mainly compensation administration.  I would like to be able to incorporate my knowledge of Spanish in the work place.

I believe that a person needs to be centered in mind, body, and spirit in order to contribute positively to an organization.
