Put my broad range of professional experience to work for your team! I have had the pleasure of working in multiple industries and on a wide variety of teams. This grants me certain business perspectives that most may not have. In addition to years of professional service, I am personable, adaptable, and enjoy tackling and solving challenges. Let's talk today about how I can add to your team!

Ideal Workplace Values

Perfect-world workplace values include active efforts to promote from within based on skill, aptitude, and initiative; management support of opportunities for cross-training and growth within the company; and corporate participation in neighborhood/civic volunteerism.


My Badges

Skills and Strengths

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). 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.

Clinical & Neuromuscular Massage Therapist - Self

I operated a successful part-time massage therapy practice for many years. It was my privilege to assist people, dogs, and horses reduce pain and improve physiological function so that they could live more active and fulfilling lives. This required staying current on technological and scientific research, certifications & licensure standards, and ethical practices. Few things in life have given me more joy than to see someone limp into my office grimacing in pain and walk out upright and smiling.
