I have an ultra creative mind with a knack for humor, compassion and drive. I am a crochet artist, and take pride in the social media marketing I have produced, and what I will be utilizing in the near future.
I once dreamed of being a teacher, and education is extremely important to me. It is my goal to work in a school system or non profit relating to education, student affairs, student activities, or community service.
Other areas in which I have expertise and would like to explore further include creative writing, journalism, customer service and small business management.
