I'm 26 years old and a soon to be father in August. I have four dogs and used to volunteer as a dog training to work with aggressive dogs. I also love to read and write and am currently working on my first novel. I've worked in the tile warehousing and installing business for over 8 years. I would love to take on a new challenge in a new career path and implement strategies I've learned over the years into my new career. I'm a very hard worker and excellent problem solver. I handle pressure better than most and love a good challenge. I hope whoever is reading this gives me a chance and regardless I appreciate you taking the time to read it. Thank you.
