Her passion for Diversity Equity Inclusion and Accessibility is always present in the work she does. Her work in higher education bringing mission vision marketing branding social media recruiting and onboarding from a cooperative background into a university framework is unparalleled. Her work in VIP guest service and hospitality at some of the top companies in the world demands the highest-level service, flexibility, anticipation of needs, and confidentially. Both these roles lead her into large project management, from international conferences, and college campus graduations, to Walt Disney World Chrismas Parade taping. She is a creative facilitator who not only evaluates but adapts to changing priorities, and resolves challenges and conflicts while maintaining a positive personality. Having a disability allows her patience to work with people is strengths.
