Problem Solving

Through my experience as a sales Associate and camp counsellor I have become very fluent in my ability to eloquently and professionally communicate with customers.

Participated in the Leader in Training (LIT) program at Royal Botanical Gardens where I learned key leadership concepts, styles, goals and qualities.

My ability to work in a large team has been crucial in my past occupations as well as the high frequency of group projects completed in university classes.

I have been able to grow my creativity and knowledge in artistic best practices through my Graphic Design position and extensive training in both fine and digital art.

Through working in unpredictable environments I have become able to calmly deal with unexpected problems and administer an educated solution
