Professional Summary

I am an upbeat and hardworking employee that puts my full effort into everything I do. All my current experience is with a team but I am fully comfortable working alone as well. I have held leadership positions in the workspace such as head hostess which gave me supervising experience during hectic shifts. I have also had extracurricular leadership positions such as the president of my high school’s DECA chapter and captain of the mock trial team for two consecutive years.
