I am an energetic and resourceful person currently seeking a new challenge which will allow me to utilize my meticulous attention to detail, and friendly, professional manner.

Attentive at all times with good observation skills as well as the ability to work alone or as a part of a team. I am now ready to make an upward progress in my career.

I had learned to be extremely organized, to prioritize and turn things round in a short space of time. I had also experienced what it is like to work hard and for long hours. I always had to deal with many people at different levels and being personable carries you a long way in any job. I had learned to keep a level head at all times, even in the craziest of situations.
