QUALIFICATIONS


My main strengths lie in the ability to iniate and carry forth the workload needed to be done. Because I have had my own business most of my life, contacting the right people and doing what needed to be done to get the product finished and shipped was entirely up to me.

I also enjoy working with others. Understand other peoples feelings has always been easy for me. I have worked quite extensively with new, young mothers. Many were in problems with coping with their new roll as a mother. I have an ability to listen to their views while at the same time allow them to see a different perspective which often led them to change their habits for better ways of dealing with their children, situations or other people.

I enjoy seeing people make changes to improve their status in life, with their children, families or other people and go out and start earning an honest living.

Learning new skills is very important to me. The world around us is changing so rapidly it is important to keep learning new and better ways to accomplish the same things I have worked with over the years.

The most recent accomplishments were to make 2 US Flags for MRG Communications, 8' X 12'. After the terrorism on Sep. 11, flags were not available for their truck for the parade that took place in early October. These flags were made by hand with appliqued on stars, and designed to fit the billboard truck.
