Professional Summary

Having worked in different fields of work i would describe myself as hard working, determined, and fast-learning. I say hard-working because I consistently do my best to ensure my work is thorough and more than exceptional. I am determined because whenever i start a new job or just anything new, I am determined to make sure I understand fully what it is that I am doing and do my best to do it at peak performance. I labeled myself fast learning because once I am taught how to do something catch up to the flow of things quickly so I can pull my own weight without my fellow coworkers having to focus on me as well as their own work.
