I have been in the customer service industry for over 6 years now in various forms, starting as a server in a restaurant to my current position as a salesperson in a retail setting. I am very proficient in handling customers face-to-face, over the phone, and via e-mail and the internet.

I have a basic grasp of how to work on cars. I worked on various problems on my own cars. I am attending school to gain a better knowledge of how to do these things in both a personal and professional manner.

I operated forklift on an almost daily basis while working with the Fastenal Company (see above). I used them to move products around the showroom, load products to go to other stores and load heavy products for customers.
