My life and career choices continually present situations that require high levels of managing and organizing multiple projects with competing deadlines and priorities; allowing me to become someone who thinks on her feet, responds directly in critical situations and communicates effectively. I have a distinctive background that encompasses administration, technology and human services, combined with a bachelor’s degree in Human Services Management. I enjoy working in an atmosphere where I can contribute my unique strengths for successful service and outcomes.
