Over time, I perfected my ability to take initiative and work independently. I thrive off engaging with people on a daily basis, and continually search to find ways to better the lives of those around me. I have professionally assisted a family, individuals, and even professors in their lives; I love it all. While I still maintain these relationships, I am always open to new opportunities.
