I'm a digital problem solver. Let me bring my next-level ideas and innovative thinking to your organization.

Since the age of one, when I pulled out the drawers in the kitchen to climb up to the counter to raid the cookie jar, I've been fascinated with figuring out the better way to do things. Those skills translate well in the digital space where problems abound and you need someone with creative ideas and the experience to find a path to success.

Developing a Social Media Ambassador concept and recruiting experienced, multilingual contact center reps from our Dublin, Ireland and Warsaw, Poland support centers solved for the critical lack of coverage via Twitter.
