My Motivation

What makes me tick

I like making sense of things and I am energized by identifying a problem and creating a possible solution. Organically I thrive on learning and growing. ‚Äč

Skills

Time management and logistics arrangements. Planning (meetings, events, private functions.) Communication with clients and staff (written/oral.) Observation: thinking ahead, looking back, and pattern finding. Problem identification and analysis w/solutions proposed. Analyzing procedures and systems - improving where needful.

Thinking Talents

I'm a 4-Quadrant individual with a proclivity for learning, making order and fixing things. I get a sense of satisfaction when I am able to check-off a goal I've met and enjoy the "alone" thought time in making things run smoothly.
