About Me

#ActuallyAutistic

Because the jobs I'm seeking align with my special interests, it means that I am incredibly passionate for what I do and am willing to be constantly learning and growing. This passion has earned me various leadership positions throughout my educational career, and I hope that friendliness and hunger for learning will show as I move forward too!

Ideal Workplace Values

To me, an ideal workplace is open to learning about its employees and their needs. An ideal workplace would be one where we're all looking to uplift and help each other to work towards a common goal. It would be LGBTQ+ friendly, neurodivergent-friendly or willing to learn and accommodate, one where people's time and energy is respected and valued.


Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

I have a strong eye for detail, and I am able to identify patterns that others might miss. Because my brain thinks differently, I'm sometimes able to come up with creative solutions that others would not have thought of.
