I have held a job in the service industry almost continuously since I was 18, which means I know how to hustle. I've never lost that, and this experience forms the foundation of my expertise in communication and customer service. It has made me unflappable and patient when it comes to collaborating with people.
I hostessed, worked full-time as a receptionist for years in salons all over the country, worked at an amazing bakery in Brooklyn, NY (One Girl Cookies!), catered events throughout the city of London and around the state of Wisconsin, and I did temp work in Baltimore on top of everything listed on my resume.
