Summary

I am currently employed as an office receptionist, at a large Orthodontic practice in upstate NY. However, I am still seeking employment with a company/firm where I am challenged and can use my experience, skills and education to better myself and that company.  

I am ambitious and passionate, with an excellent work ethic. I am an innovative worker with creative skills from my unique music background. I graduated from SUNY Plattsburgh with a Bachelor of Arts degree. My major was music (voice).

I am able to work independently and easily self-taught. I have a passion for program development and event coordination; with experience specifically in a higher education environment. I have superior multitasking skills, with the ability to take on multiple high-priority assignments and develop solutions for issues or problems that arise. I have exceptional decision-making skills that strictly follow the policies of a particular institution. I strive to be a continually collaborative co-worker. Within the workplace, I exercise the value of communication and mutual support. I am extremely organized and perform all job duties at the highest level of integrity and confidentiality. 

I have a broad range of job experience and skills in; marketing, programming, education, event coordination, administrative/clerical, music, entertainment and creative arts. I adapt to change and surroundings well and I'm a fast learner. I embrace any challenge, as a positive opportunity to improve my abilities. I have no doubt that I would be an asset to any institution/company, if I was given the opportunity for employment.
