In working many jobs, I have learned many different skills and values that I still hold today. Among my peers I am well respected , known to be a valuable leader, and always have pride in my work. Having had the same job since 2004, I have proved that I am hard working, loyal, reliable, and steady. I am never afraid to take on a challenge and push myself to perform at an ever expanding capacity. Learning new skills are a value to myself because I am always up for a challenge.
