About me


I have experience communicating with a variety of stakeholders in different circumstances, and I'm flexible in my approach to interpersonal relations. I'm just as capable processing admin work as I am contributing to creative brainstorms, and I respond well to constructive criticisms. I believe my greatest assets are that I'm a good listener and I approach work methodically.
