About me
I am a driven, hard-working, highly organised and creative person, and pride myself on my relationships with others and my professional nature. All of my previous roles have required prioritisation and a level of flexibility to continually shift these priorities. I see resourcefulness, organisation, respect and determination as key attributes to being successful in my roles. I have both managed teams and been managed myself and found that the balance between these has been key to a successful working environment.
