Summary

I am a hard working, self-learner, always motivated to improve.  I value a hard work ethic in myself and in others. I enjoy learning from others, as well as passing on my knowledge to those that can find it useful and I always strive to put the team ahead of myself.  Having a wide variety of jobs in different settings has really helped me to develop skills that are an asset in the workplace, such as clear communication, adaptability, professionalism, and the value of positive energy.
