An accomplished, hard working small business owner with proven leadership skills. I began working in management at CVS Pharmacy when I was in high school. After I graduated with a Bachelors degree, I was immediately promoted to Assistant Manager and was a Manager within two years. I acquired many valuable skills including time management, training and managing employees, forecasting sales, payroll and customer service. While working as a manager, I completed my Masters Degree in Organizational Management which developed me into a more effective manager and team leader.
After my son was born, I made a difficult and scary career change. I decided to take ownership of my father's laundromat. I have successfully run this 24 hour business and now I am ready to take on another challenge.
Owner and operator of busy laundromat. I am responsible for all components of the business including inventory, maintenance, accounting and customer service. I have implemented a wash, dry and fold service as well as corporate accounts. Every day I use problem solving skills to correct problems as they arise. I made necessary budget costs during the 2008 economy recession while maintaining honest and affordable services to my customers.
I managed several stores over 14 years. I was responsible for inventory control, merchandising, scheduling, sales and forecasting. I worked closely with all types of people and was a team leader and mentor. I was effective in cleaning up the "problems" of many stores and I determined staffing needs. I screened, interviewed, hired and trained numerous employees. I motivated employees and identified their strengths. I used this real life position while obtaining my Master's Degree.
I completed this dynamic program with passion and the drive to become a more effective leader. It consisted of several courses that taught me how to make better decisions using critical thinking skills and how to handle the dynamics of any organization. It made me competent in team building and understanding employees as well as customers. I completed this program with a GPA of 4.0.
