Although I have acquired most of my skills at my previous jobs in the restaurant community, that is not where my ability stops. I am always desiring and open to learning new things, pursuing new opportunities. I love to interact with other people, be part of a team and do my best to please others. I try to keep a positive and fun attitude around the workplace, but will still maintain my professional position and give respect to both co-workers and superiors. You can always depend on me to carry out my duties to the best of my ability.
