I am an experienced corporate professional (with military experience as a junior officer) that possesses strong organizational, writing and analytical skills. I have a Bachelors of Business Administration (BBA) from Texas A&M University - Kingsville and was a member of the Army ROTC program where I was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army upon graduation. I spent 4 years as an Army officer and have a depth of knowledge of military writing style, jargon and acronyms. I have spent the past seven years working for a Fortune 100 company (railway transportation) and the past 3 years have been spent working as an administrative director for the largest division in my company (4000 employees) where I created formal responses and letters to upper management within my company, labor organizations we work with, individual employees as well as members of surrounding communities our company operates in. I have also traveled abroad (Russia, Cyprus, Spain, Germany, Armenia, Hungary, Austria, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Iraq, Oman, Pakistan, Mexico and Canada) and understand various cultures around the world. My position also required that I become the resident expert regarding the organized labor contracts that existed within my company. At any given time, I have been required to work with employee work groups that have five different labor contracts among them, each with specific work, pay and discipline requirements. I was responsible for editing a bi-monthly newsletter sent out to our employees, the web content for our division website and the weekly broadcasts that were sent via internal television channels. I also have extensive experience reviewing transcripts from disciplinary investigations within my company. My position as director of administration also made me an informal assistant to the general manager for my division (a railroad GM is equivalent to a vice president in most other companies) and performed tasks for him such as managing his calendar and travel plans, writing letters and emails on his behalf and representing him at meetings.

I am an experienced US Army Recruiter and trainer of Senior leaders. I retired from the Army after 20+ years of honorable service and have expertise in managing and training a diverse workforce in difficult conditions. My strengths are identifying weaknesses, determining ways to overcome them and educating new employees on all aspects of their job. I have been recognized for improving production of previously unproductive employees, reducing response time to issues and streamlining procedures to maximize efficiency. I am a very open leader. I work well as a member of a team and am confident under pressure. I am transitioning my experience into the freelance arena as a result of a former employer who recognized my skills and gave me a chance. As the personal assistant to the CEO of a consulting firm specializing in strategic planning for small business, I found my niche behind the scenes. I am seeking opportunities to provide that same service to other employers. Allow me to handle the details while you do what you love and take all the credit. I am experienced in all MS Office applications and Windows operating systems.
