As you can see from my resume, I have a very strong administrative background which encompasses the real estate/construction industry. My background includes, but is not limited to, project coordination, contract administration, book keeping, budgeting, marketing support,  as well as endless time management and administrative requirements. From the start of my career I decided to learn as much as I could about the industry, not just my position, this experience can translate easily from the real estate/construction industry to any industry. I believe this makes me very valuable player to the teams I join. I believe each of these skills could benefit your organization. What you cannot see on paper, among other things, is an exceptional work ethic, dedication to (and determination for) a job well done, and a firm belief in honesty, integrity and respect. All of these are critical to who I am and how I perform. In addition to the commitment to my career, I am very active in charitable organizations. In particular, I have worked side by side with the Development Coordinator of LifeLine Animal Project on their annual fundraiser, the Lint Roller Party. This event featured live entertainment, open bar, and a silent auction. This event had an attendance of 350 people and their canine companions. Our special guests included Georgia State Senator, Chip Rogers. 

The experience I gained with the Lint Roller Party, led me to begin Critter Campaigns when I found myself laid off. Critter Campaigns conceptualizes, coordinates and executes events for animal organizations, businesses and charities. Current Clients included; Must Love Dogs, Inc., LifeLine Animal Project, Save Our Pets Food Bank, and Animals Deserve Better. If, after looking over my qualifications, you feel that my experience is a good fit for the position, I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss the possibility with you. Thank you so much for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
