I intend to bring a solid foundation of experience, dedication, leadership and professional integrity to the role; while upholding the standards of the Turks and Caicos Islands Government Public Service.  My time in the private sector has helped to develop invaluable communication, time management, self-discipline, relationship building, interviewing, solicitation and telemarketing skills, which I know will be an asset to my new role.”
