    My skills with marketing, human resources, organization and leadership are excellent. My computer skills are also outstanding including the entire Microsoft Suite and Adobe Software Suite, Salesforce, ACT!, Lotus, and several other applications. I thrive under pressure and the winning combination of my high energy level and positive attitude results in consistent project success; always accurate, on time and under budget. I have been completing contract positions with companies such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Lockerz, Sun River Resort and Orca Bay Capital; generally supporting the CEO while searching for a permanent position in my chosen location. My role as the Executive Assistant to the CTO at Specific Media included ensuring the smooth operation of a 130-person technology team. This included all hiring and HR duties, managing third party vendors and their contracts, coordinating the construction of a new office, managing and executing special projects, and creating presentations / marketing packages and events for potential clients. Specific Media recruited me while I was employed at Nokia and held two positions concurrently, with both of my supervisors apprised of the situation. At Nokia I was an Executive Assistant to the VP of Business Mobility / Head of North and South America. I loved this position as it allowed me to tackle anything that needed to be completed. A large part of this position was actively anticipating and preparing for my bosses needs or wants. I managed all of his travel, expenses, meetings and his 90-person direct report team. I was a regular conduit / moderator for scheduling high-level meetings with C-level Executives at T-Mobile, AT&T, Cisco, and many other large, publicly traded companies. My role with American Reprographics Company (ARC) allowed me to wear many hats: Account Manager / Sales and Marketing Coordinator / Executive Assistant. ARC is the world’s largest reprographer and afforded me the opportunity to work with several of the largest AEC (Architects, Engineers and Contractors) firms in the world, one of the accounts I held a key role in obtaining and maintaining is the MGM Design Team and their Project CityCenter in Las Vegas. As an Account Manager I regularly achieved 150% of my monthly goal, while also managing all of our company marketing, event coordinating, company training (internal and external) and public relations.
