Relevant Skills

Core Principles:

 My rural upbringing and strong family unit instilled within me important values and principles at a young age, which have developed and grown to what I live by today – hard-work, loyalty, honesty and a desire to learn. To achieve my goals, time management and organisation have become the underpinning components of my ethos.
