Hello; and thank you for your consideration. Following this summary, you will find quite an eclectic mix of work experiences & skills that I have obtained throughout the years. I enjoy fast-paced work environments, and love to learn. I am bright & eloquent, and can excel at any task I am given; (with the proper training & appropriate guidance for said task). I am a traveler, a musician, an artist, and a passionate writer & speaker. Allow me to introduce myself, and thank you again for considering me as a part of your team.

Creative & Clerical: I have 10 solid years of customer service training & direct experience, as well as being a skilled typist (at approximately 80 wpm). I am familiar with many operating systems, and have experience with customized data entry platforms, and most Microsoft and Apple products, alike (word processors, spreadsheets, etc).

I am also skilled in photography, digital media (graphic design/promotional work), wax sculptures & candle-making by hand, costume styling, repair, and design, and basic costume construction.

Child Care: I have worked with children for over 14 years; from infants to young adults, and very much enjoy doing so. I have a strong knowledge and understanding of high-risk students, such as children in poverty, homeless families & individuals, victims of domestic & sexual abuse, and have direct experience in nearly all of these areas, personally, as well. I take great pride in being able to advocate for these children, and give them the proper guidance to become strong, healthy, confident, and intelligent adults, who do not let their trauma define them. I am very passionate about creating a better culture & future for our youth.

Equine: Over the last few years, I have learned basic to intermediate knowledge of horse care, and have spent months at a time riding them, working with them/around them, and grooming them on a daily basis.

Construction/Tools/Equipment: I can perform basic to intermediate construction tasks, and have several years of experience with most hand-held tools/power tools, ladders, and can safely use small tractors, mowers (push, ride, & zero-turn as well), golf carts & other vehicles. I have many years of renovation experience as well.

Music: I am a classically trained vocalist & musician, and was a member of vocal classes & audition-based choirs at the Crane School of Music in Potsdam, NY. I am trained in Opera, Contemporary styles, Theater, & more.

I am quite clever & resourceful, and a natural problem-solver. Traveling has helped me grow into a multi-faceted person; who is truly versatile, and adapts easily to anything. Below, you will find highlights of my experience; but if you don't see what you'r looking for, please ask! Chances are, I have done it at some point. Enjoy!
