To obtain a position that I can apply my writing skills, creativity, and strong work ethic in a professional setting.


For over four years I have worked in the healthcare industry providing supports for adults with developmental disabilities. In this fast paced environment I have learned valuable problem solving skills, interpersonal skills, time management, and supervisory experience. I developed and utilized my creative skills to coordinate activities for clients and employees.

Before that I worked for a number of years in both retail and service industries receiving extensive training in customer service and sales. Through my internship with Walt Disney World Company I trained in Disney’s guest service Merchantainment program. As a leader in guest service around the world, Disney offered the chance to provide guest services to international guests on a daily basis. 

I would like to take the skills I have acquired through work experience and education to further my career in public relations.  I have a passion for being creative, writing, and event planning and would like to find a career that incorporates these skills.
