Summary

In my senior year of high school I became vice president of THA’s architecture club where I learned leadership and event-planning skills. Since then I have developed superior interpersonal skills allowing me to communicate with people at all levels. This, along with my motivation and spirit to serve, helps me to provide the best customer service experience possible.I have an intellectual curiosity; I am motivated by new challenges and opportunities to learn; and have a strong ability to troubleshoot for solutions and provide support in almost any situation. I pay very much attention to detail and perform best in high-pressure, fast-paced environments.

In both school and work I display a high proficiency in reading and writing English. My adept computer skills cover Windows, Microsoft Office, Peachtree, QuickBooks, the Internet, and email.

The larger gaps in my work history are due to unemployment and the smaller ones, from 11/06 – 12/06 and 08/08 – 09/08, are due to relocation. I left Michigan in 2006 for a job in Wyoming because of Michigan’s struggling job market. I later left Wyoming because of my dissatisfaction with living in an isolated small town. I chose to leave my position with Target in November of 2009 to accept a position with a recent employer. Unfortunately, it did not work out (for reasons that were not disclosed to me). By then it was January and I decided to seek employment in Colorado. While living in Wyoming I found that I very much love Colorado for many reasons. I am excited to be starting to build roots in Colorado, and am very eager to begin working in the accounting field since I just completed my first accounting degree on May 2, 2010. The one thing I like best about accounting, besides the math, is that every company requires it.
