I am pleased to offer my resume for your consideration in choosing your next plant health care professional.
As Petty Officer First Class, I was fortunate to have been awarded positions of high responsibility and trust. The demonstrated quality of my leadership reflects my belief in personal accountability, and communication that fosters civility and respect. It is this commitment to leadership through example that allowed me to excel in all assignments, exceeding rigorous standards, and to earn the confidence of junior personnel, my peers, and leadership.
As a student at The Ohio State University, I have been equally fortunate to receive instruction and mentorship from some of the finest minds in plant pathology and horticulture. I chose challenging and diverse coursework, for a strong foundational knowledge of phytopathology, integrated pest management, plant physiology, controlled environment agriculture, propagation, plant-microbe interactions, and environmental science. These skills allowed me to thrive in my role as Plant Health and Cultivation Manager for Great River Farms. I was routinely presented with operational, environmental, and budgetary challenges which required me to develop common sense, workable solutions that produced sustainable results. I was challenged to synthesize aspects of my experience and academic knowledge, and I’m proud of my contribution to the farm’s success.
By maintaining a relationship with my academic mentors as well as my professional membership to the American Phytopathological Society, I am committed to staying abreast of trends and developments in my field. I am confident that my keen attention to detail and commitment to excellence can add value to your team. Exceptional academic, employment and personal references, full employment history, and copies of awards and performance evaluations are available on request. Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to speaking with you and learning more about this exciting opportunity.
