Summary

I have attained a B.A. in studio art, I am currently working part time as an Office Automation Assistant for the US Coast Guard in Alameda. Also, I am currently taking a few business classes at Chabot Community College. I have working knowledge of Microsoft, Excel, and Power Point, Visio, and have general office skills such as scheduling, typing, and filing. I am highly motivated and very eager to learn new skills. I have a strong academic background in studio art such as painting (oil, acrylic, watercolor), textiles, ceramics, sketching, lithography, mixed media, Photoshop/Illustrator skills/Flash/Dreamweaver, and design skills. I think that I could apply my combination of knowledge and experience to the work at hand.

I have excellent time management skills along with superior research, writing and verbal communication skills. I have a strong work ethic, flexible, reliable and work well under pressure. I am superb at multi-tasking, quick learner, an efficient prioritization; motivated self-starter, and a team player.
