About Me

HI THERE! I CONSTRUCTED THIS PAGE AS A PERSONAL SUMMARY TO HELP YOU GET TO KNOW THE GIRL BEHIND THE RESUME.

PERSONALITY

I am an adventurous and confident person with a sharp sense of humor, a generous heart and a north moral compass. I’ve been called fearless and unflappable. Outside of professional situations, I don’t take myself too seriously and can be quite goofy if it means seizing the day or making someone smile.

HOBBIES & INTERESTS

Creativity sustains me and spills over into most aspects of my life, personal as well as professional. A devout DIY-er (do-it-yourself-er), I am not afraid and truly enjoy taking on tasks that come my way, whether I have the slightest initial idea how to accomplish them or not. With positivity and determination to, not only solve the problem, but hatch a better solution than has been previously forged, I jump right in. I find it supremely rewarding to tackle and defeat such projects and therefore can say I have personally accomplished things I never expected to such as: building a fence around my backyard, developing a successful ecommerce store, managing home renovations not only for myself but others, publishing an e-book, and becoming a skilled cake-pop-maker!

BACKGROUND

Lafayette born and raised in New Orleans, LA, I appreciate and implore southern hospitality and have no qualms/even identify with the phrase “Crazy Cajun”. I accredit my background to being a well-rounded individual who can slip into a ball gown to mingle at a gala or rev up a 4-wheeler for a nature exploration. A strong work ethic was instilled in me at an early age. My parents encouraged me to participate in volunteer positions where they could be found, and at 14 years old, I became part of the workforce in my first job after my Dad lobbied for and obtained a work permit for me. This decision sprung from my parents’ desire for me to learn and live the values of working hard and being grateful for your bounties.

CHARACTER

I like to think my character is distinguished by dignity, empathy and honesty. But seeing as you probably don’t know yet that I possess such qualities, here are a few ways in which my character has been described by my peers:

 

“I have never met someone who can grasp any concept we discuss, take it, and turn it into something even better. I only wish I had met you earlier in my career.”
