Summary

I have a highly portable skill set across various industries, which has helped to broaden my perceptions over the course of my career. This has, in turn, allowed me to become an "out of the box" thinker and problem solver, as well as contributed to my reputation as a closer. As a manager, I have supervised up to seven employees, and was Interim Acting Executive Director of a non-profit agency with a $1M+ annual budget. I have a proven skill-set, winning personality and a polished, professional demeanor, which has often led to my being the primary liaison between stakeholders, i.e., executive management, staff, clients, vendors and sub-contractors.
