Tyus Southern

I am a professional dancer seeking to transition into a marketing, creative, or general administrative position. My background combines a creative side in dance with operations, customer service, and administrative experience. As a dancer, I developed discipline, commitment, and the ability to work with others, while my recent experience as a food delivery captain strengthened my customer focus and people management skills. The variety of my professional experience demonstrates my ability to adapt to a company’s needs, amass skills quickly, and excel working independently and as part of a team.
