Some fun facts:
I wrote and published several articles in Thrive Global, all I am proud of. In Dec of 2017, I was selected as a winning contestant for writing an alternative ending to Umberto Giordano's opera "Andrea Chénier" - which, in Jan of 2018, took me to Milano, Italy, and Teatro Alla Scala. My first book was published in March of 2020, while the Covid pandemic expanded into a global crisis. I am very excited about my second book which is a children's Christmas book that will come out in November of 2021 though it really is also a book for adults. I am currently working on my 3rd book which will be a psychology and philosophy book related to human life experience." />

Summary:
When it comes to work, for me, it's about passion and scope. I have to know that my work makes a difference, that when I am done with work and close my laptop for the day my colleagues and clients are happy. I have over ten years of professional work experience excelling in client relations, vendor management, legal billing and legal operations, contracts and compliance, revenue reporting, AR and collections, accrual management, fee analysis, and accounting. I have been entrusted with taking ownership over new territories and improving processes and systems and I have been awarded for my accountability in taking action in the face of crisis. Meanwhile at Mondelez International, I was awarded an award for augmenting the Trademark related business relationships and compliance after only three months into my role. Furthermore, I have improved the MEU region by 80% within six months implementing new processes, leading and coordinating resolutions to reoccurring issues and streamlining communication between various departments such as tax, finance, legal, and AP. Nine months, after commencing my role at McDermott, I received the "You are the Bomb!" award for my work ethic as well as for "always giving her 100%," as in the words of my director, "gaining the trust of all whom she works with." In my current role, I was promoted to Accountant III just 3 months after joining Blackhawk Network. In addition, on March 4th, of 2021, I was recognized by the former CFO of the company Joan Lockie in a process involving transactional reconciliations. I will go far and beyond to excel in anything I do. Integrity, professionalism, progress, and passion for my work are my highest attributes, ones which led me to accomplish great things, thus far, and which will continue to do so.
