Objective

Looking to combine both my experience in marketing  with my passion for animal welfare.

Summary

I am at my best when I am juggling multiple projects at various stages.  Whether I am working with a client, managing the workflow, or collaborating with outside vendors, I am always focused and able to complete each task-at-hand while keeping the final goal in view.

Interest

I was a volunteer at Save A Dog in Sudbury Massachusetts.  They are a non-profit organization that transports dogs from high-kill shelters in Tennessee and other states and brings them to Massachusetts where they are placed with loving homes.  My duties there included interviewing potential adopters and conducting the exit adoption meetings.

I am a hobby dog-trainer who is involved with Rally Obedience.

I am also interested in many outdoor activities including running, hiking, and snow shoeing.
