Will Relocate:



At this time, I am seeking a position that will allow me to support myself while also learning about potential career opportunities as I plan to eventually go on to graduate school. A position with exposure to different job roles and/or training/internship would be ideal; but being realistic, I am open to all potential job opportunities at this point in my education/career. My recently awarded B.S. degree in Psychology combined with my various job experiences during college have provided a broad range of skills in management, administrative support, and hospitality and meeting logistics and assistance. These are described below.
