Profile

I am a professional who has spent the past twelve years as an English, Journalism, and Yearbook teacher, with additional experience as a social media manager. I am an ambitious and dedicated individual and offer many skills that can fit in a variety of occupations. In my careers, I have been in charge of developing creative and engaging curriculum components and brand design, providing thorough instruction and communication, managing diverse groups, and annually developing / editing the publication of the school yearbook. I also have strong skills with various technological platforms. I am proficient in Google and Microsoft applications, editing/publishing programs like eDesign / InDesign, editing applications such as Adobe / Canva, and various social media platforms. I consider myself an efficient multi-tasker and a strong problem-solver, exhibiting professionalism in all things I am involved in (whether it be independent or as a team). These are altogether essential skills I would carry over into any job position.
