Discipline, Analytical, Responsibility, Relator, Harmony

I firmly believe balance is the key to life. Amid work, school and play, I strive for that balance between ensuring responsibilities are met and relaxation exists.

Truly living the American Dream, work has always been a part of my life. I’ve worked such a variety of part-time jobs – babysitter, hostess, sales associate, office assistant, tutor, circulation desk assistant – that I’ve gained invaluable life lessons from all of them. I am better equipped at communicating in different situations and at overall balancing because of these different positions.

I am also a student at the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater and am working toward a Bachelor of Arts in communication with an emphasis in public relations, as well as a minor in digital marketing. It is a daunting idea to finish school (for now) as it has been my constant for the past 17 years. However, my experience so far with Blue Door Consulting has shown me that I can keep learning and growing far beyond graduation!

My personal life is a little less balanced between family, friends and self, but there usually isn’t a wrong mix. I enjoy finding time for a good book, Netflix® show (currently moving through NCIS… again) or nap.
