I have almost 10 years of collective experience in managing the various components of an organization including strategic planning, human resources, finance, and marketing. I was the Human Resource Manager at the largest non-profit in a fast developing Asian country focusing on HIV education, awareness, support and care managing over 70 employees and 700 volunteers in 6 office locations. Prior to that, I was the Executive Director of JV Marc Corporation, a company I founded in July 2006. I was also the former Company Manager at MySeminars (the events arm of a legal publisher), managing over 10 employees and responsible for setting the direction, vision and mission of the organization. Currently based in New York City, I am keen to focus on any paid tasks focusing on Training, Administration, Human Resources, Nonprofit Management, Strategic Planning and Event Management. I am keen to work with either individuals or organizations (big or small) alike.
