Profile Summary

The simple fact is that the workplace has dramatically evolved in recent years. You need an employee who has the experience to navigate the "virtual office" of website management and social media as well as the more traditional office setting of a physical workspace. I provide a strong experiential connection to both of these areas, evidenced by the body of my work.

You will find determination, drive, and dedication in many applicants, but with me you will also see woo!. Woo! is creative style. When paired with these traits, woo! generates product that is an extra step above the competition. I have always focused on taking that extra step and will continue to do so for your business or organization. Give me a project and a power cord and I will give you a powerful product.

Steak n' Shake

While this is not an office job, serving food at a restaurant has given me a different perspective and crisis management skills. As a college student I worked with two distinctly different groups; high school students at their first job and middle-aged adults well into their careers. I was scheduled to be a lead server during busy dinner shifts and was responsible for closing the store each night I worked. Bottom line: I know how to facilitate communication between different age groups in a stressful work environment. I take personal responsibility for each job I do, even if it as simple as making sure a customer receives their meal quickly and without flaw.

Legal Assistant

Sherwood & McCormick Law Firm

For any good law firm there will be a lot of paperwork to process and store. My primary job as a legal assistant for Sherwood & McCormick was to convert all physical records to readable PDF files and store them on a secure shared network drive. After completely scanning, converting, processing, and refiling our records, the lawyers were able to easily locate past evidence, testimony, and arguments without a time-consuming trip to the file room.

Additional duties included researching potential case topics for the firm, delivering important legal materials to their correct destination at the Tulsa courthouse, and generally assisting the lawyers with miscellaneous technical problems.
