    United States - Portfolio: 5

    I've had the chance to experience so many different professions, in such varied environments. I've learned an incredible amount - from state liquor license applications and acquisitions, to restaurant publicity packages while juggling operations management on the side, to a freelancer who rapidly went from transcriptionist to the head of content in far less than a year. I'm highly organized, not to toot my own horn, but I don't think I've had one job where I wasn't viewed as an asset.
