    I have worked in call center based sales and service for over 20 years. I have worked in multiple industries, in small and large centers, and most recently from home for a variety of clients. Since working from home, I have been able to finish my Masters Degree and start Law School. These are goals I could not, and probably would not have achieved were I not in a position to work from home. I'm always interested in new opportunities and how developing technologies improve the service we provide and expand the services we can offer.
