I have a wide variety of employable skills due to the many positions I have had the opportunity of holding over the years. I would definitely welcome the chance to work in any field to add to the skills I have already acquired.
I am experienced in sales, office work, hospitality, inventory, and as always, computers. I am bilingual, although my conversational French could use some practice.
My interpersonal skills are also quite developed due to my past volunteer experiences in the non-profit sector.
I have an enhanced security clearance for government positions.
I also have a SIP Certificate and a SmartServe from working in the Bar and Restaurant businesses. I am a very outgoing individual, who is energetic, dependable and able to adapt well to any new environment or situation.
Also, I have just recently stepped into the world of Music. A perfect compliment to my already artistic lifestyle. I am now managing bands, booking bands, promoting bands and venues, etc, etc.
