I am detail-oriented, have a strong will toward perfect and efficient performance, and I am well-organized and able to function in a busy atmosphere and with strict deadlines. I thrive in a community-based workspace or classroom, one that builds each individual as a part of a common whole. In every job I pursue, I work tirelessly to create lasting network connections and have developed a learn-on-the-job mentality so that everything that must get done will be done.
