About Me

I love people and I'm passionate about service!  I believe that for every problem there is a viable solution and I will work tirelessly alone or as part of a group to find solutions that enable me to make significant contributions to my company's bottom line.

I thrive in fast-paced environments, love learning new things and I am an effective multi-tasker.  I am currently open to a full or partial telecommuting opportunity or relocation (preferably SE region, USA).

In my spare time I enjoy motivational coaching, crafting, alternative healing, traveling, reading, creative writing, interior decorating and all things culinary.
