My past successes of owning my own business and managing a bookkeeping department have prepared me to be successful in school by developing abilities to manage my time effectively while working under pressure. I have become exceedingly organized and excel when working both independently and as part of a group. I am able to focus on multiple projects simultaneously with exceptional accuracy and detail. I have developed strategies that improve processes, resulting in time and revenue saved, while meeting and often exceeding project deadlines. As a result of superior work performance I was asked to manage my department and now oversee several individuals in their daily tasks.
Not only have I found success in the workplace, but I have also accomplished a great deal in my personal life. I am a single parent raising three amazing young adults. My oldest is developmentally delayed and requires a structured routine and continual emotional support. Additionally, I have a daughter preparing for college this next fall. Balancing my family’s needs, maintaining a home, and running a successful department at work requires a great deal of time management and energy, but I find I thrive on the challenge.
