How Do You Roll?, Austin, TX, US, Intern - Project Manager/Store Designer

My primary responsibility at the office was to learn the project management process and to implement better streamlining of tasks.

As a designer, I was test-fitting potential lease spaces, conducting site-visits, and researching to improve the future store design.

Thai Spice / Crave Restaurants, Austin, TX, US, Sushi Chef / Server

My passion for food led me to work part-time in restaurants during my enrollment in college. My primary responsibility as an employee in a restaurant was to ensure excellent food service to the diners. As a sushi chef, I coordinated with a co-working sushi chef to promptly and accurately provide delicious sushi to the diners’ orders. My mid-shift and closing duties included checking and restocking on necessary ingredient for future use. My experience as a server taught me a lot about multitasking and communicating effectively.
