Who I Am
(Or, okay, maybe a list of skills)
I like to have a lot of fun. Okay, who doesn't, though? (Really, if you hate fun, get out of my face.) More specifically, there are very few people I don't get along with, and my most recent position had me working with a statewide team on a multitude of presentations (for large organizations like SAMHSA, even) and very large projects. Therefore, I'm clearly a team player. I'm also great at monitoring success, as this was something I was required to do on a regular basis for my grant-funded position.
I have this tendency to take things, add my spin to them, and make them better. When our grant's website needed to be transitioned over to new ownership (because a departing employee owned the domain), I did that, but I also completely redesigned the website within a few months of the move to make it a responsive site that any one of our team members could update easily. When I came on board, I took our newsletter from drab to fab, with an overall more professional look. I've taken our food resource guide (basically, a recipe guide almost anyone can follow) and made it a full revision, with new recipes and a new, fun format that helps people learn to cook.
Not just that, but I've regularly served as a cook, party planner, exercise coach, teacher, peer, and overall hype-maker. It's a good gig to have.
With each day that passes, I am continually developing myself not only into a better employee, but a better person.
