    I was working as a bookkeeper in a finance company for 5 years. Then gone abroad to Papua new guinea for a year to expand my accounting knowledge to overseas level. I consider myself to be good w/ excel, especially in generating formulas making it automated to provide a more accurate, easy, & fast reports. I am very fond of exploring excel and apply those explored to my regular work. I also made alterations to my company provided excel sheets for a more accurate and faster results which helped me a lot for earlier deadlines. I am also currently practicing the software Quickbooks Pro 2011 through a Video tutorial. And I am in the learning stage for Quickbook software and still trying to get familiar w/ it, I can learn easily when working with it. During my work in Papua New Guinea, I was able to work using Peachtree for only 5 months and mostly was only excel because I was assigned in field. Hope I could have a chance in working using it and apply what I have learned. For now, I am fully available anytime . I am a committed contractor for a committed employer, and utilize every bit of my skills and experience for a job well done..
