Creative Specialist


Tenacious, driven, and motivated

Let's face it. I like to get things done. Often times I find myself more productive when I have several projects in the works which has made me an expert in multi-tasking. Through the years, I've learned how to communicate effectively and I enjoy working in teams as well as on my own.

Below you'll find a list of my experiences in the past 12 years which will enable me to contribute to any organization's success!
