Fun Fact
I love using Adobe InDesign and Adobe Photoshop, to design resumes for my friends! After using both programs to create my highschool's yearbook, I am very comfortable using both, and love to do so! It's fun for me to create their resumes to stay tuned into those skills, and beneficial for friends.
Passion
I am passionate about finding creative ways to approach problem-solving. I am results driven and focused on an end goal. I love strategic planning and working towards a solution in a team.
