1. An individual who possesses a mastery of office skills, demonstrates the ability to assume responsibility without direct supervision, exercises initiative and judgment, and makes decisions within the scope of assigned authority.

2. Nan van der Steur


I can remember playing "office" alone as a little girl, noodling around on my mom's ancient typewriter in the den. I saw myself as Lucy Carmichael, Theodore J. Mooney's secretary on The Lucy Show, taking dictation, answering phones, and basically overseeing all of the many details inherent in running a busy workplace.

In spite of the dubious choice of Mrs. Carmichael as a role model, I developed top-notch interpersonal and communication skills, as well as project management abilities. It's a bold statement, but I think my talent for organization is unparalleled, and I am confident I can bring order to virtually any type of chaos, expertly establishing well-ordered systems where none exist. Follow-up and tracking are also traits I possess in good measure, allowing me to keep on top of all assignments without anything slipping through the cracks. I think my current role as a proofreader is PERFECT for me, since I am detail-oriented and meticulous, and I enjoy the work (and my team) tremendously.

I am energized by taking on diverse assignments, as I possess a deep desire to learn and grow. I also enjoy venturing out of my comfort zone occasionally, as I believe tackling new (and different) challenges increases my creative juices. Far from being intimidated by technology, I relish learning new skills or discovering a program shortcut. I am a creative problem-solver, as well as a consummate team player.
