I have worked in retail for most of my adult life, but technology and various creative expressions
have long been my passion.
While in retail, I have repeatedly been drawn to leadership positions and do well without constant oversight and often come up with unique solutions both independently and as part of a team.
While working at WalMart, I was given an opportunity to go to a week long class about how to be a better leader, and while much of the material was specific to WalMart's policies and procedures, I also learned how to more effectively communicate with and encourage my team among other skills and values that will serve as an asset in any future position.
Here are some fun facts about me:
- I have a tuxedo cat named Vincent
- I love playing video games, most notably the Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Fable, and Pokemon series
- My favorite color is purple
- I love sweets (especially chocolate!) more than life itself
- In the latter part of my childhood, I lived in a village with a population of 74
- My high school graduating class consisted of about 54 students and my whole K - 12 school could fit in most of the middle schools and high schools I see around Kansas City
- I am a HUGE Harry Potter nerd (I'm a Ravenclaw)
