Summary

My name is Melissa Burnett.  I am currently working at Dillard's as a sales associate while I pursue a degree in nursing.  After twelve years of working dead end jobs with little room for advancement, I am confident that a prosperous future will begin with an education.  I love to be around people and help people.  My previous work history has given me experience in the service industry.  Obtaining a degree in nursing will enable me to work in a division of the service industry that I will love.
