Professional Summary

Adept certified surgical technologist thrilled to further my experience and knowledge with background in the most prestigious of healthcare centers, proven leader with the U.S. army reserves, and five years of graduated surgical technologists experience in trauma and elective surgeries. I am also exhilarated to gather knowledge and experience for my upcoming nursing career where I will be graduating in May 2021 with a national company where I can pursue my goals of becoming a Doctor in Nursing Practice either as a nurse practitioner or a certified registered nurse anesthetist. Afterwards I would like to serve El Salvador where my family has a lot of land to build houses, businesses, and a clinic to the population and the medically underserved.

I am quick to adapt to changing settings without losing focus, meticulous, stop to think of problems from multiple angles and never attack in one way, driven, enthusiastic, dexterous, and ambitious
