My area of expertise is in daily operations, including procedure and training. My experience is derived from working at every position within the company, enabling me to formulate strategies to build a more efficient business foundation.

These areas included bookkeeping, purchasing, sales, inventory control and customer service. I wrote and was awarded numerous Government contracts to supply Medical Equipment and I created a complete step by step training program using PowerPoint with over 60 modules for the Sage accounting software.

I am self taught in the following:
• Microsoft Office (Excel, Word, Publisher, Outlook and PowerPoint)

I am a high achiever and results orientated person as an example I graduated with highest honors in Interior Decorating while staying home with my twins.
I look forward to the opportunity to work with you on your project(s)!
