Tea Educator and “foodie” seeks opportunity to learn and serve with an exciting, innovative company
...for Southern Season's tea and coffee department, or for serving Afternoon Tea at Southerly. But, if you need help elsewhere, I am also fascinated by things like cheese straws, exotic mustard, and chocolate - basically everything that Southern Season purveys.
As a self-employed freelancer for the past fifteen years, I have learned to balance my tea-tasting, writing, speaking, and researching with business tasks like finding clients, invoicing, advertising, and billing.
I also studied to become a Life Coach, not because I wanted to be a coach necessarily, but because I wanted to improve my ability to listen to and encourage others. These so-called “soft skills” apply to any work environment. I am as passionate about building vibrant relationships with clients and co-workers as I am about friends and family. In my experience, good relationships are what makes work meaningful.
