Cheltenham, PA, US



I am bulletproof and I am eager to join an amazing company that I can grow with. My work experience along with Drexel University’s demanding coursework has been great preparation for the challenges of the design world. As a graphic designer for The McGraw-Hill Companies, I have maintained their computer archival system while meeting tight project deadlines. This experience demanded strong organizational skills as well as a careful eye when it came to editing copy and maintaining brand standards.
I am a strong communicator who can flex my creative muscles on my own and beyond a cubicle. My recent experience in customer service at TD Bank and Macy’s has perfected my ability to listen and interact with diverse groups of people. I also brought my energetic attitude in retail to the marketing offices for Maxim Automotive and Aetna Health Insurance. I am confident that my creativity and ability to multi-task would make me a valuable addition to any team.
