About me

I have ten years experience in office administration, studio management, client service and multimedia production. Within my career I have gained knowledge from a variety of working environments to become a confident communicator, with the ability to liaise with a wide range of people both verbally and through written correspondence. In my roles as an Administrative Assistant and Office Studio Manager, I liaised with staff on a daily basis coordinating office task and duties. I am efficiently organised and use Macintosh and PC computers to a high level. Working within production I’m use to the challenges of operating in a deadline driven environment and am able to maintain focus when under pressure. I possess a hardworking ethic and always strive to exceed the needs of service.
