I am a passionate and energetic person who loves to help people and see other people succeed. I thrive on giving my all to any project and enjoy the journey as much as the end result. I like being challenged with new projects and watching my hard work unfold. I have excellent time management and organization skills, I am a positive person and accept any road blocks or hiccups as a test and something to overcome. I have had much life experience, some brilliantly unforgettable and some so traumatic I wonder how I got through, but I did and here I am, still alive and kicking, my sense of humour still intact and ready for anything else life chooses to throw at me.
