I am goal-oriented and well organized. I articulate goals, develop plans, and implement them to acheive my employers' goals.
I believe every person brings a unique and special gift to the world. My unique and special gift is to help others identify and use their gift. I empower people by training them in computer and other skills, and encourage them by believing in them and helping them achieve their goals.

Working in Public Assistance, I was content going home every day, tired from a long day of work, and satisfied that I had helped someone. That was enough to motivate me to continue that line of work for a long time, despite being in an imperfect environment. I found I could effectively separate myself from all the hardship I heard about throughout the day, and just focus on the little I could do to improve my clients' lives.
Armed with that knowledge, I now realize that any work where I am supporting others - from administrative assistance, through office management, and of course training and customer service provide that sense of helping others. So I am now seeking any work where I am supporting others. I am interested in helping any and all clients - the under-served, professionals or Directors alike.
