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.
