About Me

#ActuallyAutistic#HireMe#OpenToWork

I am a self-motivated professional with a diverse history in customer service and a comparatively short stint in sales, where I've amassed transferable skills that I'm more than ready to take into a remote recruiting and talent acquisition opportunity, one that offers a base salary. I'm also happy to consider talent sourcing, HR generalist, HR assistant, and other similar roles if the opportunity is otherwise right.

Ideal Workplace Values

A strong stance in favor of DEIB/DEIA (and its variations), a stance in favor of supporting LGBTQIA2S+ team members, philanthropy, social justice, racial justice, offers opportunities for advancement made available to me, paid time off, and benefits.
