Shannon Stucky Resume

  •   I am looking for a change, to learn, grow and move forward in my career. I want to put my experiences and skills to work for you! Here are a few reasons why you should consider me.

    Passion

    I am a passionate person in all areas of my life. No matter what I'm doing, whether I'm writing a press release or dancing the Waltz, I do it with my whole self. I am always challenging myself to learn and grow and to do better than I have before. I am not apathetic by any standard and work hard to do the best I can at everything I set my mind to.

    Ambition

    Ambition is not just the desire to move forward, or the ability to aim high. It is about having the courage to take risks and to actually take steps forward (or in some cases back) in order to further your goals. Ambition is not just about dreaming about your future, or planning your future, it's about actually making it happen. And that is what I do.

    Collaboration

    I have learned to relate, communicate, and work with anyone in any generation. I believe multiple perspectives bring insight and creativity that could not occur on their own. (Plus having a second pair of eyes on something you have written is critical!) I am highly adept at working in a team as my success has hinged on my ability to work with clients, printers, professionals and even the general public. My work is often just as much about relationship building and conflict resolution as it is about communications.

    Problem Solving

    Problem solving requires both analytical and creative thinking. The real problem needs to be narrowed down from its many symptoms before an efficient and cost-effective solution can be created. Unlike many communicators, I have cultivated both a creative and an analytical mind through my complimentary degrees and entrepreneurial spirit. I don't see problems as roadblocks, but as challenges to overcome and potential successes to be achieved.
