The diversity and volume of these experiences have made me fortunate by allowing me to accumulate equal parts hands-on and interpersonal skills that enable me to effectively engage and motivate, while competently and confidently managing my projects and teams. I firmly believe that I have the innovative thinking to contribute positively and continue to welcome opportunities to exhibit that drive and aptitude.
