I’m a vibrant, mature person who has enjoyed extensive international travel and work experience and is proud of maintaining high personal standards. I thrive in challenging environments and I’m quick to learn new skills, which I can apply in varied, flexible situations. I enjoy working in team environments, interacting with people from all walks of life, but am also capable of performing well in a sole charge environment. I’m knowledgeable and experienced across a wide range of industries, providing me the skills to be flexible and dynamic in my approach to all situations. This makes it possible for me to quickly adapt to new environments, which means I'm quickly able to make a positive contribution.
