    I am currently doing volunteer teaching work in France. I speak, read and write both English and French with English being my first language. I have done translation and interpreting work on an individual basis and for large groups. Over the past 4 years I've worked as a Licensed Personal Banker for 2 large banks in New York. Within the bank I managed the sales team, was responsible for meeting sales goals and assisted the manager in managing all functions of the branch. I have strong sales skills but also excellent oral and written communication skills. Part of my job was written communication with clients from diverse backgrounds. This helped me to become proficient in writing, proofreading, and correction. Also I have worked as a Personal Assistant and Manager where I was in charge of organizing meetings, travel arrangements and doing research projects. As a Personal Assistant I managed the team and kept things running in the office. I touch type 60 words per minute and I am very comfortable working with computers.
