For the past eight years I have been a proud member of the Pacific Northwest Ironworkers Local 86.  During which time I became experienced in safety regulations and rules as the Safety Coordinater for union contractors for four years.  I have enjoyed the comrodery as well as the opportunity to work with such a unique group of individuals.  Prior to  this, most of my work experience was in the professional arena.  It is in this atmosphere that I am most comfortable and successful both professionally and personally. Looking to transition back into the professional field. Ambitiously  asking for the opportunity to show you how I can make a difference in your company as well as the lives of those you touch.  Using my nine years of customer service experience , skills and GOD given abilities I am sure to be a perfect match for whom it is you are looking for.
