Presently, I am a stay-at-home mom and will finish my bachelor degree in Art History/Culture this coming Fall. My work experience includes; data entry, customer service, light bookkeeping and retail sales. My strengths lie in writing (business and creative), following through on a task promptly, and learning quickly when introduced to a new task/subject. Now that my children are older, I am ready to re-enter the workforce. My work ethic is superior; I am a self-starter and like to work independently but can also work alongside others proficiently. Discipline is key in my life, and I will apply this skill in any work environment that I am in.

I am just getting started working at home. I love it, but need to be busy. My profession was Social Work. I have collaborated with professional grant writers for funding from the Red Cross. Also wrote content, did research, and edited, a proposal for a State funded Program for underprivileged children. I worked with an audiologist, a nurse, a school sports coach, and teachers. The Program was accepted, and funded. I also worked on articles about animals, that were fun, informative, serious, and helpful to the cause for Animal Rights. I can write content for greeting cards, which is a favorite of mine, since I can be creative, and it never gets boring for me.
