Skills

Skills

Programming

I have studied, implemented, and feel confident in my skills within the programming aspect of events. In my time at Murray State I have initiated two programs that are now annual events, as well as developed several existing programs to be executed more sufficiently. I have actually been taught, through courses in my major, how to properly plan and evaluated programs of all sizes.

Customer Relations

I started off in the work force within the field of food services, where your customer relations are probably the most important thing. I have continued through the years keeping the same attitude that I learned from that first job in everything thing that has followed; quality service with a smile.
