  • Ability to work well both independently and as part of a highly collaborative team.
  • Strong work ethic and ability to make decisions, multi-task, prioritize and follow through on numerous projects simultaneously.
  • Ambitious/highly motivated, strong work ethic and leadership skills, interest in taking on increased levels of responsibility.
