I like to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity and I am a part of a few groups in my church where I attend regularly.

I have spent the past 18 years working for IBM through a contract with Manpower. I began working in an administrative support role which grew into support for marketing teams. From this I eventually went on to become a part of IBM's Proposal Support Center which became a part of IBM's main marketing support team responding to RFI's, RFP's, RFQ's and all other bid documents.
