My employers have found me reliable, thorough and accurate in all my work, not afraid of challenge and who brings initiative to problem solving.

Energetic and loyal, I balance a meticulous and dedicated approach with the flexibility and flair often demanded by clients’ needs. I like to take personal responsibility for my own work, remain calm under pressure and always aim to achieve targets within time frames.
