02/2013 to Current Receptionist/Maintenance Associated Grocers | Ball, LA,

Since my sophomore year of high school, I have worked and grown in the Property Management business at my family's company, Amber Management. Over the years, this business has presented me with unique opportunities to learn and grow in a professional workplace and in result, given me extensive experience in client and customer relations. Some of my daily tasks included responding to internal personnel inquiries and complaints regarding maintenance and repair, performing routine inspection and maintenance on all kinds of equipment, and installing new systems, replacement parts and components to maintain proper operation. I learned to tackle different projects pertaining to property management that taught me the importance of hard work and helped me gain the skills in this strict business that separate me from many others. Some days persisted of working behind a desk helping clients over the phone, while some included going to locations and physically working on equipment. I am proud to say that this business taught me to take pride in my work and to always get things done as soon as they are asked of me.

11/2019 to 03/2020 Graphic Design Intern Endless AutoSalon | City, STATE,

I was an apprentice at Endless AutoSalon (Vehicle Wrap/Decal Shop) for about 5 months learning how to properly design vehicle wraps, helmet wraps, product packaging, commercial advertising, and T-shirt design. Some of my daily jobs there were coordinating and presenting printing specifications with various vendors to ensure the timely completion of projects as well as generating computer graphics and page-layout software, graphic elements and photography.

Although, my experience there was cut short, I am eager to learn more about the industry and how to apply my artistic skill to commercial and private clients.

I enjoy being presented with new ideas, challenges, and difficult tasks that push me out of my comfort zone and open my imagination to the graphic design world.

I am hard working, creative, driven, responsible and always ready to learn and work in a fast-paced environment.

I always carry myself with true integrity, I appreciate constructive criticism, I always show up ready to give 110% effort, I work well with others and I am passionate about Graphic Design and giving clients the design they envisioned to market their business.
