Service Description

Over my twelve-plus years of professional service, I have built a career on managing marketing projects -- proposals and brochures for a civil engineering firm as well catalogs, flyers, eStores and blast e-mails for a promotional marketing company with Fortune 1000 clients to name just a few. In the last year-and-a-half, I have had to assimilate into three different companies' cultures immediately to be effective in my assigned role as a temporary employee. At one point during the Summer of 2007, I found myself working a temp job during the day and formatting and editing a manual for a union group in the evenings. With my ability to multi-task and learn quickly, I believe I could be an asset to your company's goals.

My degree in Journalism has equipped me with the skills to write promotional articles for publication, develop ads for engineering firms and produce copy for catalogs and eStores. When I was getting my degree, I imagined that I was destined to work in an advertising agency. I never imagined the tangent my life would take upon graduation, but I haven't regretted a single step of it.
