I desire to work for a company that takes great pride in the products and/or services that are provided, and who strives to provide excellent customer service. As a Contract Coordinator I work closely with the directors from multiple departments to ensure all contract compliance is met. It is my responsibility to ensure that the Coalition meets the strict standards and guidelines set by the Office of Early Learning and the State of Florida. My experience as a Laboratory Technician IV demonstrates my ability to work quickly and effectively never comprising product purity or quality. I can follow both verbal and written instructions while preforming procedures within a specified time frame, understanding the impact to the patient on the other end. I understand the importance of following specific company practices and procedures while always looking for process improvements and addressing them at the appropriate time. With my experience as a Customer Service Supervisor I have the capability to work both as a team player and the motivation to work without supervision. I understand the importance of providing exceptional customer service and maintaining a positive work environment. I am an excellent trainer who achieves ongoing success with her team by building morale, self-confidence, and always working to improve customer service skills. I have demonstrated the ability to effectively handle situations or inquiries while working within company policy. You will find that I am detail oriented and possess the capability to adapt to all situations always maintaining a professional disposition. I am accustomed to working on multiple projects simultaneously and have the resourcefulness to prioritize when necessary never compromising accuracy or timelines. Sincerely, Kimberly Scruggs
