Professional Summary

I've spent most of my adult life as a stay at home mom. Finding creative ways to take care of my family. In doing so I've built my own company along the way as well as learning important skills with running a business.

Being a military spouse for 10 years, with no disrespect intended, I feel the experiences surrounding military life provide opportunities that are unique from what many people experience. The skills that I've had to develop include being highly organized, self-starter and dependable. Learning how to problem solve and manage multiple strict schedules has become a strength that I have acquired. I do feel the need to say that one of my personal goals is to be able to take the knowledge I have learned throughout various jobs or life, and be able to apply them to not only help others, but continue to grow and continue to learn to be the best version of myself. I strive to be able to have a positive impact on those around me.

With my children now being older I am able to once again focus on my personal career goals, as I eagerly anticipate rejoining the work force.
