Other Skills

I am an extremely fast learner and enjoy a challenge. I am adept at thinking outside the box in order to determine efficient solutions to problems. I also enjoy learning in any scenario, whether it be new software or new management theories. I also excel at streamlining processes and training others on how to do the sames. I enjoy working with people, but I am also a self-motivated worker with a passion for the work that I do. I can learn anything with little to no outside training, as I have a history of being self-taught.
