About Me

I have had the pleasure of working in small businesses since leaving the Navy. I’m grateful, because I have had the opportunity to wear many hats at once in each of them, mastering simultaneous roles, allowing me to lead very dynamic and effective teams to successful conclusions. I have seen what can happen to a business that operates on a reactionary basis and that has driven me to strive to take proactive measures as a supervisor, to ensure mutual growth of the business and the people essential to its daily operation.

I am a motivated, personable business professional with an abundance of accolades and a successful 10+ year track record of profit procurement/delivery growth. I have a talent for quickly mastering technology. I am diplomatic and tactful with professionals and non-professionals at all levels. I am accustomed to handling sensitive/confidential records. I have a demonstrated history of producing accurate, timely reports meeting stringent domestic/foreign guidelines.

As a flexible and versatile Navy Veteran I am able to maintain a sense of humor under pressure. I am poised and competent with a demonstrated ability to easily transcend cultural differences. I thrive in deadline-driven environments. I have excellent team-building skills, always equaling in success (myself/business). I possess superior training skills, with the focus in effectively communicating material for optimal success. I display a worldly demeanor, exuding 21st century progressiveness.
