Skills & Certifications

Dedicated & Punctual

Going to school full time, as well as working part time has pushed me to stay on top of assignments and projects. Keeping to a tight schedule and ensuring nothing is left till the last minute has developed strong time management skills as well as dedication to expectations other hold for me.


The Engineering profession requires a high degree of professionalism and responsibility, while still developing I have been well introduced to the variety of responsibilities that come with the degree, as well as the professionalism required and expected by my peers.


Refereeing has helped me learn to work together as a small team, Home Depot has helped me learn to work in a large group with a diverse group of individuals. Combined I have gained the knowledge of both small and large group work.
