    Over the past seven years, I was able to acquire, develop and enhance various exceptional skills including those that are critical to the BPO industry which includes end-to-end customer service operation, comprehensive back-office process development and human resources administration. Moreover, I have been immersed in the practice of law by virtue of my education which emphasized concentration on various legal subjects. Before pursuing a career in the private sector, I was part of the Legislative and Legal Teams of two (2) Philippine Senators - the Honorable Miriam Defensor-Santiago and former Senate President Franklin M. Drilon - for a couple of years. As a freelance paralegal, I also experienced representing litigants before quasi-judicial bodies such as the National Labor Relations Commission (Philippine Labor Law), Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board (Real Estate Law) and the Office of the President (Appellate process). My core competency lies in complete delivery of projects, events management, legal research and transcription, data entry, general transcription and administrative functions such as those of a virtual assistant. Presently, I am seeking opportunities to help individuals and organizations to increase productivity and add value to their respective ventures.  less
