About 

I am a graduate from NCSU - class of 1992, I have two bachelors: One is in Multi-Disciplinary Design and the other is in Communication.

I have:

  • Excellent interpersonal skills to effectively manage multiple internal and external relationships.
  • A solid business background, understand business analytics and an intuitive feel for the business.
  • Outstanding oral and written communication skills; active listening abilities, attention to details.
  • A “can-do” attitude with a hands-on, roll-up-your-sleeves work ethic in a fast paced environment; comfort with multi-tasking and handling conflicting priorities.

I have a strong capability of handling a broad range of complex inquiries.   I believe that I can provide a great attitude, energy, experience and my enthusiastic professional ethic to a work environment.
