Multi-departmental collaboration, cross-cultural communication, and producing highly detailed and dependable administrative and management support are what I do best. I am a global development professional, passionate about conflict prevention and resolution, and social inclusion. I enjoy experiencing the world's cultural diversity and have had the opportunity to live and work in 5 different countries. Throughout my career, I have learned to be flexible and to cultivate strong working relationships to improve businesses processes, increase office efficiency, and solve unexpected challenges. I enjoy working in teams and understand the importance of being a good listener. I also enjoy public speaking. In my previous position at the Department State I had the opportunity to brief civil society about social inclusion in Latin America and participated in several Leadership Programs as a panelist. In Afghanistan, I trained more than 200 new field employees about Civilian-Military cross-cultural awareness, and in Brazil, I recruited more than 20 new clients for a Colombia-based corporate tourism agency by presenting in Portuguese the company's portfolio. I am committed to my career in international development and I look forward to using my on-the-ground experience, knowledge, and skills for making the world a better place.
