Long Term Employee

I am a very visual and hands on learner and have a wide variety of interests. Learning a new skill or field does not scare me! I thrive in environments where I can take on new ventures that help me grow and learn. I am a first generation farmer and am passionate about growing plants and flowers as well as small herd livestock.

Ideal Workplace Values

Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

I see the big picture a little differently and look for creative ways to solve problems. I have a multitude of interests that give me different angles to approach and serve as additional sources of information. I am a very visual person and like to take data and transform it for others to understand.
