SELECTED ACHIEVEMENT HIGHLIGHTS


* Enhanced both product and business reports: Pinpointed inconsistencies with cu
rrent reporting structure used. Developed more accurate and timely analysis by
blending skills in Oracle to query the data needed and report using MS Excel. U
sers can refresh data within MS Excel and their reports/charts update automatica
lly. I have used these skills to create reports covering anything from manufact
uring scrap to product failures to customer feedback. I have a proven ability t
o propose, manage, design, develop and deliver complete solutions to customers.
* Frequently asked to perform training and sales presentations to clients: An ex
ample of how versatile I can be as an employee. While performing the position o
f Oracle developer, my professional manner and personality caught the eye of the
owner so I was asked to travel to select clients to administer software trainin
g sessions. This eventually grew into performing sales presentations to our big
gest potential clients.
* Comfortable dealing with all levels of staff: In my current position at Biomet
3i, I have been given the responsibility of performing our monthly trend analys
is to executive management; a duty usually reserved for Director level staff or
higher. My research and analysis is used for decision making in the highest lev
els of our company.
* Presented with the Partners In Excellence Award: The highest honor given to le
ss than 1% of employees at the Walt Disney Company. Awarded based on commitment
/success to Customer Service, Cast/Team leadership and Financial Awareness.
