Customer Relationship Management

My Customer Relationship Experience extends far beyond the front lines of customer service, and the credo of "the customer is always right."  In account management, I speak honestly, yet appropriately.  I use my tenacity, compassion, and tact to communicate favorable and unfavorable information with a great deal of respect and integrity.  Positive professional and customer relationships are key to success in any industry.  

Resource Allocation

I have a natural entrepreneur spirit.  In my experience at the construction company, I worked directly under the owner assisting with project management.  There I learned the importance of having the appropriate inputs, tools, and people in the right place, at the right time.  Juggling Human and financial capitals with live time management has always been my strong suite.  In addition to my experience, I have a secondary business focus in Entrepreneurship, where I have learned to hone these skills and abilities.  Most importantly, I can effectively communicate the necessary specific tasks, and provide appropriate documentation to substantiate my reasoning. 

Written Communication

I provided technical instruction to subordinates through boards, memos, and texts.  I have communicated effectively with customers and clients through contracts, emails, and charts.  I have demonstrated a consistent ability to be concise and clear in my academic business reports.

Microsoft Suite Management

Mastered Microsoft Office programs including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook.  Created estimate templates, auditing spreadsheets, and sales pitches.  Prepared formal quotes, contracts, and managed accounts.

Personal Mission Statement

My mission is to always be improving myself and the lives of people around me.  I will achieve this by always listening to and learning from the experience of others, without judgment, to further my academic knowledge and professional experience after graduating college, being aware of all opportunities while dedicating myself fully to the professional tasks and personal relationships in my life, keeping a positive attitude by always being diplomatic and fair, and seeking solutions that fit best for everyone and not just the easiest for me. 

Interest

I love being involved with my local community.  I do work with the Madison County Clerks office, and when possible I like to attend local charities and fundraiser events such as Shop With A Cop, WRFD Fish Fry, and local high school activity events.  I was very active in high school activities and enjoy helping them to gain skills, work ethic, and accomplish activity goals.
