Professional ​

I enjoy working in a team environment and experience in project leadership. I am proficient in, and familiar with, Mac base programs. Even if I’m not familiar with something I normally pick it up and figure it out quickly. Working in publishing, I’m used to deadlines and
fast paced environments. I like problem solving and finding creative solutions. Ultimately I would like to find a career home and a place in which I can grow and learn.
