Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

While my working memory isn’t great, I have a memory palace for everything else. I also have hyper empathy and reduce the anxiety of any colleague I collaborate with (usually at a cost to my own health). I am an expert in redesigning systems and processes to better scale.
