I'm a creative, seasoned professional with more than 8 years experience managing events and consulting with clients and internal company personnel on how best to meet their communication and marketing needs. I'm a strategic, resourceful, out-of-the-box thinker who works relentlessly to get things done. I'm committed to the marketing process and to helping businesses achieve their goals. Other highlights of my background include: - Proven capabilities with strong ability to plan, prioritize, and manage large projects all while working inside the time lines given. - Excellent analysis skills, with experience in data collection and documentation. - Strong capability to lead a team environment and accomplish tasks put before the team. Due to the tough economic conditions I was a casualty of a reduction in workforce at Pape'. I'm motivated and hungry to find a new opportunity in Eugene or surrounding areas. Take a look, get to know me a bit better and I know you'll see how I can be a valued member of your team.
