What can I do for you? Long story short, I can make your life easier! I am a professional, personable, and dependable project manager with years of both personal and professional experience across a a wide array of work within different industries both for profit and non profit. I am proficient in G Suite, Microsoft, Adobe, Canva, and Various Social Media Platforms. I am equipt to handle detailed researching, travel planning and booking, task management, time management, project oversight, event planning, client communications, internal communications, planning and organizing projects/calendars/workload, and more.
Let me start by introducing myself. I am from North Carolina and have lived here since I was 7, but I consider myself a global citizen. I have travelled to over 40 countries on 6 continents. I recently returned from a self-funded and completely self-organized trip around the word where I was abroad for over 400 days. I am meticulous and careful in all of my endeavours and I took this trip abroad as serious practice for some of my biggest passions: travel management, event planning and itinerary management. I had a budget of $40,000 for that year (I saved $20k of that in one year alone) and used a little over half of the total due to meticulous research, savvy thinking, and cost-benefit analysis'.
In a nutshell:
❖ Progressively globally-minded from experience in travelling,
studying, and working abroad
❖ Demonstrates critical-thinking and reasoning by the use of logic to
reflect on strengths and weaknesses of approaches to situations and
evaluates most effective options
❖ Mastered abilities in researching, planning, and organizing to
apply in specific tasks
❖ Skilled at time-management and utilizing resources in order to
most efficiently perform tasks and assignments
Bottom line (we all like that right?), here's why you should choose ME:
❖ I'm HUMAN: I am a compassionate, hard working, and reliable person that is also very down to earth. I am committed to being part of a work place (virtual or non virtual) that embodies a healthy, positive, and kind working style.
❖ I'm ON THE BALL: I don't let any project drop or any deadlines go past. My follow up skills are keen and helpful even when multitasking or under-pressure.
❖ I have INTEGRITY: Everyone's virtual now and there's so much uncertainty, but you can still count on me. I will always do my best and work with you until I have surpassed your expectations.
❖ My WORK ETHIC is STRONG: Completing tasks and checking boxes is my bread and butter.
❖ I'm PROFESSIONAL: I know when to keep things confidential, I have high standards for myself with both internal and external communication, and I take pride in doing it right.

"It's impossible for the ball to be dropped if Mariel has anything to do with it. She's an extremely efficient, detail-orientated project coordinator and manager. She has become a pro at effortlessly corralling the most ornery cats across multiple assignments and getting everyone to the finish line under deadline. Further, she goes the extra mile by taking on voluntary tasks aimed at improving employee engagement, morale and retention. Every committee she has been on and each project she's had a hand in has been all the better for it."
