Experience Summary

I thrive working with people. I strive to become an event coordinator or account manager at a promotions firm. I have been working promotions full-time for two years and part-time for ten years. My achievements are graduating from the University of Kentucky with a BA in Psychology and with that degree I have been a social worker, teacher, therapeutic mentor, and substance abuse counselor. More along the lines of what I LOVE doing I have been a field manager in promotions, an extra in commercials and music videos, an emcee at promotional events, and I've walked the runway in New York during Fashion Week of 2006. I currently live close to the beach with my best friend, my two cats, and my dog Howard. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
