For the past five years, I have taken a professional journey that has brought me to my current employment in the heating & air conditioning industry. And although, I am gaining customer service experience, regardless of the consumer service or product, I am proud to add this to my list of skills. However, my interests for producing consumer goods is gravitating me back to product development. For over ten years, I had the privilege of working in design as well as import production for the fashion industry. I have the ability to design/sketch free-hand full fashion figures, prepare technical packages with a thorough understanding of garment construction, negotiate fabric and garment costs, research market trends, prepare product planning reports as well as detailed follow-ups to ensure deadlines are met. This lists only a general view of my extensive experience within this industry. In an effort to expand my professional future, my recent education and career shift into the mental health industry has shown that I am willing to take on challenging new positions while utilizing my experience to further enhance my personal and professional learning experiences. Obtaining a valuable education has advanced my skills in communication, listening, providing empathy, organization, problem-solving, following codes of ethics, and research of resources involving effective treatment plans. Whether it's counseling, designing & developing the details of a garment, accessory, or selling consumer goods and services, it's the challenge to generate practical & innovative products that peeks my analytical, creative curiosity.
