An aspiring project coordinator who thrives on creating order out of chaos. I'm energized by formidable challenges and have always remained unflappable when faced with uncertainty. Having served as the main point of contact for dozens of high profile projects, my reputation for developing great business relationships is well known throughout the hospitality industry. I keep teams on track and have a knack for identifying blind spots and finding elegant solutions to unforeseen problems. Playing a key role in remote product installations has been exciting, but what drives me continues to be the opportunity to forge a path for my colleagues as part of an underrepresented group in manufacturing and project management.
