I am a business student at Boston University School of Management. My specialty is primarily in market strategy and project management, in which I have three years of experience. On the project management side I have hired and managed virtual freelance teams of up to seven people. I have also handled establishing overseas manufacturing contracts for basic products, as well as the required shipping logistics, and subsequent automated fulfillment. For marketing strategy, I have started two companies which required the creation of a product development plan, A/B testing, Analytics testing, and other marketing tasks. In an internship at a small business, I handled the creation of the overall strategic marketing plan and the rollout of an Google Adwords campaign. For further detail, please refer to my resume which is attached. Currently I am in the midst of starting a social network based business, which is not at the present on my resume. However, it has greatly improved my proficiency at project management and marketing strategy. I am most familiar with two sided markets and networking effects theory. Additional Skills: - Hiring - Microsoft Office- Excel, Word, Powerpoint - Asana- Cloud based Project Management Software - Regression Analysis - Google Analytics - Google Adwords Time Availability: EST, however I adjust my schedule according to what time zone I am managing.

I apply a solutions based approach to solving complex puzzles, and achieving successful systems improvement. I have a natural talent for "out of the box" creative strategies that solve complex puzzles. I love looking at systems and finding ways to improve them, and I also love using my conflict management skills, analytical abilities, critical thinking capabilities, and interpersonal skills to cultivate cross-cultural relationships.

The world is becoming smaller and smaller and people need to be able to reach across cultural divides to solve complex issues that affect the world we live in. Nowhere is this more true than in the healthcare arena.
