Summary

Am presently seeking a position in finance/administration after nearly a 20 year hiatus spent caring for my elderly parents. This was an unusual career move yet an immensely rewarding period of my life that was full of challenges and responsibilities yet replete with personal benefits and blessings.

Skilled at learning new concepts quickly, working well under pressure, and communicating ideas clearly and effectively.
