I am diligent, detail oriented and take pride in any work I undertake and seek to be as useful and helpful as possible.

I respond well in 'pressure' situations, remaining calm and focused on what is required. I enjoy working with numbers maintaining a high level of accuracy and it is my intention to take some accounting classes and or specialised training that would supplement my skills. I am proficient in Excel, using various Lookups, Pivot Tables and Relative, Absolute and Mixed cell referencing.
