About me

 

I am hardworking, keen and conscientious with excellent time keeping. With a degree in Product Design with honors and with 7 plus years of diverse retail sales and management experience I feel I can be a valuable part of your team. I enjoy sharing my ideas with people and am always open to constructive criticism. When working within a team I am a key player, I work well, I listen to others and always have plenty of ideas to share, motivation and friendly competition are a must and it drives my passion for creativity and allows me to reach my goal every time. With 5 years’ worth of physical and documented presentation experience and the ability to begin to convey my ideas successfully I found achievement on numerous occasions, one of which took me to China to compete in a collaboration design completion representing my university.
