Day to Day

My normal day consists of coming into work, checking my emails and following up on emails that I may have received overnight. Discuss new business with co-workers, game plan our day and follow daily operation. Throughout the day, I will listen to calls, research calls and make sure regulatory rules and regulations are being followed.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

Working has been the greatest resource for learning that I have found. Going to school gives you a great foundation. But, many of my skills I have learned over the years have been from my day to day routine. For example listening for key terms, open communications, and learning excel and public speaking.
