Professional Summary

Working for three years in a customer service industry at a mini storage facility, with job requirements ranging from front desk work to maintenance around and inside the storage units and facility has taught skills of needing a positive approach when working with customers, while still working diligently on assigned work.

Working backstage as a tech crew member for many high school performances for four years has taught the importance of being able to follow and understand instructions and to ask for help if needed, because it will help the job go much more smoothly. With the combined experience in a customer service industry and working backstage as a tech crew member, it is helpful that both experiences can be applied to future jobs. The customer service experience improves the overall performance as a backstage tech crew member because adjustment to a high pace work environment while being able to work on the task at hand has already been established, and also prepares adjustment to stressful situations, because with customer service positions the stressor must be faced while figuring out how to best serve the customer and achieve the goals or outlined instructions of the situation at the same time.
