About Me

#ADHD#womenwithADHD

I am passionate, caring, and hard-working, but I also know the importance of establishing a healthy work/life balance. I consider myself to be a problem-solver. I believe it is important to hold myself accountable for the final outcomes of my tasks and projects. As I am a lover of learning, I enjoy seeking out opportunities to learn new things and to expand the knowledge I already have. Outside of work, I love to travel/explore, read, sew, crochet, cross-stitch, take photos, and watch TV shows, films, and documentaries, particularly related to travel, culture, history, and the paranormal. I also love languages - I am fluent in French and know some Spanish.

Ideal Workplace Values

Supportive of LGBTQ+ community, women-led
