I have worked in education for over ten years and am looking to take a leap into a new field. While I don’t have traditional office experience, I do have ample experience in problem-solving, time management, communication and outreach, creating materials and developing curriculum, and creating effective learning environments, even with limited resources. I’m hardworking, detail oriented, and organized, and am a lifelong team player from the softball field to the classroom.
