Fourteen years in casual dining and quick service restaurants has awarded many valuable experiences -- from kitchen to service to management. I have a proven record training employees, meeting deadlines, building ROI and over-delivering results.

 

My journalism expertise in content creation, marketing and social media strategy will build market awareness.

Creating a motivated and passionate workplace makes a successful business. I believe that an individual creates success through their passion and willingness to deliver an exceptional product, ability to maintain a warm and inviting environment and give above and beyond service.

 

I will deliver seamless client experiences while over-achieving revenue and profitability goals. Serving is my passion and my willingness to deliver more than 100 per cent makes me the most qualified person for this position.

My Agriculture journalism degree from Kansas State University taught me the fundamentals of quality journalism. I trained with industry professionals who worked at publications such as the Milwaukee Journal, The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.

 

My Environmental background will give you a reporter that can handle any news-beat including those that are complex like sustainable agriculture and renewable energy. I am a disciplined worker driven by efficiency and will deliver on tough deadlines and in breaking news situations.
