I’ve developed my career in a variety of diverse roles and organizations. Working as an administrator for several years, I have a solid background in planning, administrative duties, coordination of special projects and data administration. I am an excellent leader who handles multitasking, prioritizing tasks, deadlines and wearing multiple hats with diplomacy and ease.

I also have a strong background in other clerical duties, standard office practice, hiring, recruitment and general HR. My experiences have given me a well rounded skill set, including excellent communication, organizational and interpersonal skills.

In addition to being flexible and responsive, I also have an innate ability to connect with people. I have developed positive working relationships with community and corporate partners to support fundraising initiatives, implemented an enhanced event sponsorship program, developed new strategies for volunteer retention, developed online marketing strategies and managed a third party recruitment campaigns.
