I am a dedicated, hardworking professional seeking a position where I can grow and learn in a positive team environment. My five years of experience as a writer and reporter has allowed me the unique opportunity to network and build trust with people from all walks of life. As a result of working under strict deadlines, I have strong organizational, time management and multi-tasking skills. I know how to think outside the box, work well under pressure, am detail-oriented, outgoing, friendly, and successful working both independently and with teams.
