I am a previous small business owner and successful entrepreneur with extensive experience in sales and customer service. I recently obtained my MBA and have a passion for data analysis, art, process improvement, writing, and project management.
I have been recognized by my peers, my employers, and my professors for showing initiative, for having a strong business acumen, and for embracing a problem-solving mentality. I am genuinely driven to leadership roles but will delegate as necessary, especially when my skills aren’t sufficient for the task at hand. I understand the need for prioritization, especially as projects linger. I have little tolerance for doing work just to do work and I align my priorities within a results-oriented work environment.
I am an optimist by nature, eager to work proactively with new teams to face new challenges. I sometimes lack focus but with so many interesting nuances to business and to life, specializing in just one area seems almost criminal. I enjoy pivot tables in Excel as much as I do presentations in PowerPoint; running reports in SAS as much as designing a logo in Photoshop; the analytical along with the conceptual.
I am a firm believer that business, art, and learning do not have to be separate disciplines, and that purposefully separating them only disenfranchises customers, employees, managers, and owners.
