I am looking for opportunites in a business setting that will help improve my skills and job experiences. I believe an internship will allow me to discover the different aspects that businesses have to offer. I have a lot of work experience in retail, and I am always looking for a chance to improve my strengths.

High School Diploma

El Toro High School




I have recently been promoted at Anchor Blue, and got hired as part of management at Hallmark. I have gained significant knowledge that will enable me to grow as a manager. I have learned to delegate tasks with clear expectations. With this, I have been developing my communication skills which has helped me to train new hires more efficiently. I am also responsible for our store safe. This has forced my money management skills to develop, and I have been opening and closing my store since my first month as a Lead.


I am a very organized and efficient worker. I make sure tasks and duties are in order before the day begins to help the day run smoothly. To be organized, I make it a point to put things in their place, fill out paperwork on time while filing it away, and making sure others are following the same standards. When i am organized, I am able to complete more tasks, and pull ahead of schedule.

Customer Service

Customer Service is one of my strongest skills. I am more interested in helping the customer find what they are looking for, than finishing tasks that can be pushed to a later time. I make sure that every customer who has entered my store is greeted, and their needs are discovered and addressed. Customer service is necessary for any company that hopes to gain loyal customers.
