In 2008, I moved to Michigan from North Carolina, leaving George W. Morosani & Associates, a company that I had been employed with for over seven years, and held three positions with. Morosani & Associates is a commercial real estate and property management firm, and also the parent company to Great Western Management Company, which manages eighteen apartment complexes, and A Mini Storage Company, which operates nine self storage facilities. All of Morosani & Associates companies are operated from one corporate office in Asheville, North Carolina.

In September 2008, I accepted the position of Executive Assistant with The Dako Group in Troy, Michigan and was employed for two and a half months before being laid off on December 12th.

While unemployed, I had the opportunity to enroll in the No Worker Left Behind program which enabled me to return to college and focus on obtaining my degree. I am currently working toward an Associate Degree in Business Administration with a Concentration in Accounting at Oakland Community College. I am on the Dean’s List and am also a member of Phi Theta Kappa, the International Honor Society for community colleges. I have already completed my core classes which focus on accounting and business management and I expect to graduate next year. Once I have obtained my Associate degree, I plan to transfer to a four year college and work toward my Bachelor’s degree.

In March 2010, I accepted a part-time position with Motovicity Distribution. I am employed nearly 30 hours per week, Monday through Friday. I support the accounting department of an automobile performance parts distribution company.

I have over twelve years of administrative/clerical experience and over eight years of accounting experience. I am exceptionally computer and internet literate. I am proficient in Word, Excel, Outlook and Publisher. I have experience with Powerpoint and Quickbooks. I also have an active North Carolina Real Estate Broker license (#223302).
