I have over twenty years of experience in both the corporate and legal worlds with knowledge across a variety of software applications and platforms. In offices environments I have the reputation of being responsive and thorough which allows the executives I work with to focus on the tasks at hand. I've always thrived at freelancing - from advance work at the White House to floater work at law firms, my adaptability and quick thinking have kept me consistently in demand. I look forward to working with you virutally!
