Service Description

Drawing from my 10 years of business management experience with Wal-Mart and as an area franchise manager for the Mid-Atlantic division of College Pro Painters, along with my degrees from Penn State University, I have a variety of skills to offer. These skills range from management consulting, project planning, creating business cases/plans, asset protection/shrink control, excellent writing skills, and human resources. As a student at PSU, I graduated with a 3.48 cumulative GPA for which I was required to research, analize, and report on various aspects of history, literature, politics, current events, etc. In my time at PSU, I wrote well over 100 reports and essays. I enjoy writing, proofreading, editing, and typing and would be happy to provide any skills listed above to those clients that wish to have my services.
