My Neuro-exceptional talent
Being neurodivergent helps me to see details that others may not. This, in addition to being highly analytical and having a strong penchant for pattern-spotting, allows me to be especially useful when dealing with data. In the software world, my programmer team members prized my uncanny ability to find obscure bugs that most analysts would miss, and I was a first pick for data mapping projects. I am a Jaqueline-of-all-trades (multi-potentialite), which affords me an uncommonly broad perspective and the ability to find creative solutions that lie just off the beaten path. One trait that employers have praised me for is an ability to transform tech-speak from virtually any discipline into plain English (written, but not spoken). I have a strong proclivity for the medical field and have a great affinity for the complexities of language, music, and science. Other interests include photo manipulation, needlework, leatherwork, and similar detail-oriented pursuits.

Environments I'm comfortable with
I am accompanied by a service dog - a Golden Retriever named Maggie, whom everyone loves. I am recovering from a significant back injury, but it is unlikely that this would affect the sort of jobs for which I am qualified.
