Based on my recent position held with Project Concern International (PCI) as the Operations Coordinator and my experience with Population Services International (PSI) as the Logistics Technical Advisor in Papua New Guinea, where I managed diverse procurement portfolios, I would be of great value to an organization looking for a skilled logistician. At PCI I became proficient in Salesforce to track and manage significant time-sensitive programmatic data for organization consumption and efficient decision making while supporting day-to-day operations and field procurement. My time in Papua New Guinea (PNG) created a platform to “think outside the box” and develop a sound understanding of multifaceted logistical situations while managing complex schedules and deadlines. These experiences culminated in a one-year contract with PSI where I developed the set-up and functioning of a new field office in a remote region of PNG that supported a multi-million dollar malaria program. Once the office was established, I maintained the programmatic administrative and logistical support including procurement, warehousing, fleet management, communications/IT, archiving and the hiring/firing of over thirty staff. When organizing the movement of my staff and cargo, I was often required to organize numerous charter flights, canoes, ocean worthy boats and vehicles to help meet our target of lowering malaria morbidity and mortality in the Sandaun Province for those most difficult to reach.

The goal of obtaining a new logistics position in San Diego intrigues me as I would be able to use my logistics skills developed on an international platform. Through my experiences I have developed a strong working knowledge of Microsoft Suite, maintained excellent organizational, communication and time management skills coupled with a strong work ethic which will exceed your expectations.
