I am a self starter, work well with others as a team as well as on my own with little or no supervision. I was voted MOST DEPENDABLE in my high school year book and I strive daily to uphold that mindset. I enjoy working and take pride in my work. I can lead as well as follow. I catch on extremely quickly to new processes, am able to "figure things out" on my own with little to no instruction as needed but am also a big fan of following direction.
