I have 8 years of prior experience overseeing a team, coordinating tasks, and creating visual displays while working as a visual merchandiser for multiple major retailers. Using past sales reports and company goals, I made daily decisions to ensure that those goals were met or exceeded. Retail is a fast-paced environment that honed my ability to think quickly on my feet and adjust to changes smoothly. I also learned to be proactive and anticipate needs beforehand. I am highly skilled in academic writing, developing and editing creative content, and have the ability to simplify complex information into a user-friendly format.
