    I am an enthusiastic, innovative, and highly motivated individual seeking to rise to the challenge of a
    career opportunity working as Marketing Coordinator and Graphic Designer.

    design, typography, Adobe Creative Suite, and communications has given me the skill set required to
    work as a Marketing Coordinator. The experience I have gained from working as the Marketing
    Coordinator at the Seedrock Group and as the Social Media and Community Manager for Zook-It Media
    and Marketing qualifies me as an ideal candidate for a creative agency.
