During college, I was as a Congressional Intern to US Congress. Upon graduation, I served as a Specialist/Russian Linguist in the US Army Intelligence. For several years, I worked in wireless telecommunications as a major accounts sales executive to Fortune 1000 companies. I spent the following decade in healthcare as a physician recruiter/HR staffing specialist for major healthcare clients across the nation. In January 2008, I relocated to Napa Valley to professionally pursue my passions for the wine industry. In 2014, I transitioned from California to the East Coast to take care of my ailing father. I took a 2-year hiatus from wine, to work in Pennsylvania as an engineering technician for natural gas exploration and production. In 2016, I married a Boise native, relocated to Idaho, and rejoined the wine industry. Now, I return to my original designs/hopes of a career in public service and education.
I have advanced skill sets with MS Office, CRM/ERP, web design/hosting, publishing, and social media applications. I have two decades of professional experience in technical research, technical/creative writing, leadership, project management, personnel management, HR, recruiting, sales, marketing, PR, and customer care. I type 60 net WPM.
