Technical Skills

My Affinity for Technology

I enjoy using technology, particularly when it comes to finding new ways to communicate (i.e., via websites, social media, blogging, etc.). I have a facility for learning new software and using it to improve processes in the workplace. For me, change is fun–especially when there is a computer and technology involved!
