  • Strong Project Management Skills…with extensive experience working as a Structured Finance Coordinator, Center Director, Area Supervisor, and R.O.T.C. Cadet. I have been involved in the planning, data research, written communication, and public service that resulted in significant accomplishments in leadership, organization, and self-discipline.
  • Communication and Public Relations Skills…in each of my positions, I have dealt cooperatively with the general public, colleagues, and superiors. My skills at interpersonal relations and cross-cultural communications are considerable.
