Office Administrator / Receptionist

GraniMed Medical Center, Finland 

I learned great amounts of professionalism while assuming high levels of responsibility in a fast-paced yet extremely discreet private medical clinic environment. I was in charge of the day-to-day office operations including taking appointments, creating and sending out invoices and managing the patient database, while at the same time providing assistance to doctors and nurses. This was a highly fascinating and stimulating environment. My professional outtake from this role was significant.
