I'm a highly energetic, flexible and team-oriented professional with a proven work ethic and six years’ combined experience in marketing and customer service. I consistently demonstrate strong communication, interpersonal and cultural awareness skills. I'm also fluent in Spanish and conversant in Korean.

I've decided to amicably leave my marketing position at Reed Smith LLP and look to transition back to and grow an exciting career in the food, beverage and hospitality industry. I have a flexible schedule and am available to start immediately anytime after Wednesday, November 30.

Thank you very much in advance for your time and consideration, and I look forward to connecting with you soon!
