Talk to me … you will be pleased! My objective is for an entry level or advanced position as the case may be. Whether in solitude, with repetitious tasks, or where every second requires a new solution serving multiple parties at once, my goal is to always produce the best and more. This, I will do for you.
Being an associate, assistant or leader is fine as I am always ready to learn and do it your way. Will consider a salary, fair for the work and location. A base of $42,000.00 for a local position would be satisfactory, negotiable for an interesting job or other considerations. Home is the Macon/Warner Robins Georgia area but will go where the right position leads.
