Career Summary & Goals

I believe that success is the  balancing of many things; education, family, work, and personal pursuits.  It means being able to maintain that balance while striving to grow and be better at and enjoy each of them. 

My dream job would be to work in international operations.  I enjoy the challenges associated with international business and learning to appreciate and understand other cultures.  Perfection would be having the flexibility to work out of home on my farm in Idaho, while constantly traveling between the US and other countries.

I feel passionate about and love life and especially the people with whom I am closest; my family and friends.  I truly love the outdoors, sports, and personal fitness activities and pursue them as often as I can.  I have found that discovering new ideas and continually challenging myself enhances the things I enjoy and often presents me with unexpected pleasures.

What I Care About in a Work Environment

·         To me, there are things that are very important  in a work environment.  I feel that it is important that the environment be neutral of hostility and social discomfort.  The environment must be challenging, offering opportunity for growth.   It is also imperative that good business ethics are being practiced by all levels within the organization.
