  • Proactive leader with the ability to gracefully and effectively manage up and across with leadership and peers.
  • Comfortable with ambiguity and thrive when creating new things from scratch.
  • Experienced and adept at managing multiple, complex projects at once.
  • In a short phrase: You get things done.
