I am a single mom of three so my time without children is limited to school hours. My oldest is old enough to watch younger siblings for a few hours after school. I cannot work before 9 am because my younger children are walkers and they need to be taken to school every morning and cannot be dropped off before 8:35 am. I need work desperately. I can work nights any time after 10 pm until 6:30 am as well as the day hours. I can work from home if possible I have a working computer as well as internet access.

I have experience in customer service, sales, typesetting, secretarial work, graphic design, layout design, ad design, logo design, photography (portrait, family, boudoir, and some product), writing, serving, bar tending, house and office cleaning, and even some labor work (mowing lawns, sanding, painting, rubble clean up, yard cleanup). I have done some remodeling work, I can lift at least 50lbs consistently. I am willing to just about anything. I learn quickly. Type accurately at least 35 wpm, I can type faster once I have gotten accustomed to typing that much again. If I don't know it how to do something I will learn it on my own time if necessary.

I just need work badly. I am fun loving and passionate about life and I am told easy to get along with. I am organized in work, though I may seem a little chaotic at times, you will find that everything is very organized and neat when I am done. I am willing to work my tail off to the best of my ability for anyone who is willing to give me the chance to do so.

I have attached a link to my online design and photography portfolio as well as pasted my resume under that. My resume is also on my portfolio. It only lists the position I held that had to do with layout design as that was the work it was created for. I have other work history if you would like to know it.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post. Thank you, also, for any consideration you may give me. As I said any work I am not picky, I just want to be able to support my children, keep a roof over their heads and food in their bellies. Thank you again!
