Experienced administrative/legal assistant
  • June 6, 2018

In January of this year, I resigned from my position with the State of Florida after 21 years of service.  I enjoyed my job; however, commuting to Tallahassee for twenty-one years took an enormous toll on my family.  After taking a six month break to spend time with my thirteen year old daughter, I am refreshed, refocused and  ready to return to the workforce. While the majority of my education and experience have been in the legal field and legal office setting, I am confident that my excellent communications skills, computer skills, enthusiasm, and ability to work well in a fast pace environment make me qualified for  an administrative/clerical position with Bainbridge Memorial Hospital. I am eager for an opportunity to join your team.
