I am a passionate and dedicated individual. I thrive in an environment where I get to learn things that interest me, such as: music, science, literature, history, advocacy, animals, coffee, etc. I have worked in food service for 10 years primarily as a barista shift supervisor. I have also worked in an emergency department for one year as a psychiatric crisis technician as well as a transporter during the covid pandemic. I am currently working as a legal assistant for a local attorney. I enjoy getting to switch things up. I do benefit from a loose routine, but I don't care for a rigid schedule that is very similar every day. I have 2 years of college experience in the human services and psychology fields. I am currently returning to school for a laboratory technician degree. I also volunteer weekends at my local pride center. I am learning about photography and videography in my free time, and occasionally take small photographer jobs for friends. My hobbies include: making coffee, photography and videography, playing (piano, ukulele, guitar, bass, singing) and analyzing music (theory, lyrics, sound, composition), reading non-fiction research articles and books or listening to educational podcasts, and spending downtime with friends. At my core I am a creative. I find interesting solutions to situations that others do not.

💪Skills & Strengths
I am able to think outside the box, and use my creativity to find solutions that others don't. While my auditory processing skills in terms of speaking aren't the greatest, I feel music with my entire body. I can speak about it effortlessly. I am extremely passionate about my interests and am happy to share my knowledge with others. I work best with clear instructions or predictable work, that still offers flexibility and variety. When I am given direct and specific instruction I do a consistently good job. I am dedicated, and personable, and can read a room extremely well, probably too well honestly.
