More About Me
I thought I’d tell you a few things about what I'm like as a coworker:
• Collaborative, organized, proactive and love to plan ahead. Deadline driven.
• In a pinch, I'm also a great trouble-shooter and problem solver.
A cross between a ringleader, a paramedic and an air traffic controller.
My bedside manner, quick assessment of situation and implementation of contingency plans have made many projects get right back on track with a minimum of strain.
• Contribute to creating an efficient, calm and friendly working environment.
• I have a great eye for talent and a knack for empowering people on the job and mentoring.
• Sensitive to the larger picture and the overall mission behind our actions.
• I'm patient, funny, generous and kind; I’m also loyal to a fault.
