With over 14 years working in the Non Profit sector, I have a strong desire and commitment to working in this challenging but very necessary field. Working at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science has given me invaluable insight into how modern science museums operate. Working in the Special Events department allowed me to follow my interest of event planning and production while working in a non profit setting. I enjoy working as a team that provides consistent and considerate customer service.
While working for the Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA), I gained relevant media and PR experience drafting regular press releases and coordinating daily media relations. Additionally, I produced and managed the monthly membership e-newsletter, while coordinating event marketing collateral.
I am experienced in volunteer coordination having led several volunteer groups consisting of both adults and teenagers. I work well under pressure and have no problems working independently on various projects simultaneously.
I enjoy working as part of a team and am very loyal both to my company and the duties related to my position.
I am passionate about working within the non-profit sector and have dedicated my career to working within this industry sector. I am motivated to make the world a better place one step at a time and enjoy surrounding myself with like minded people.
I am comfortable working with various computer programs including database software and have worked with various platforms including Tessitura and Artifax. I quickly pick up new technology and enjoy passing my knowledge on to others. I enjoy working in a fast paced environment but also appreciate the necessity of administrative tasks.
