My extensive work experience has given me a great deal of skill in multiple work environments. I have been part of teams that went through a complete hotel renovation and have even part of a team of educators that opened a brand new school in a growing charter school network. I have studied abroad in Mexico and have nearly perfected my Spanish in reading, writing and speaking the language. I have always been a fast learner and a great researcher when I need to learn more about a subject. I will always be on time with my work and I am very detailed when it comes to proof reading and correcting my assignments. I pride myself with everything that I do.
