************* The Short Self-Pitch (SSP) *********************

My name is Renee Wroten.  I'm originally from California and have been
in the Dallas area for almost 18 years now, with the exception of
spending one of those years in the MD/DC area, which was back in 2005. 
I am looking to relocate back to the area.

I received my Master's degree in Liberal Arts from Southern Methodist
University in just 14 months.  My background is in Human Resources.  
The most recent position held was at Countrywide Home Loans where I
served as a HR Coordinator for their Leave of Absence department.  While
there, I was able to streamline a work list of 500 cases down to 60.  I
was able to do that by conducting research, locating duplicate cases and
cases that didn't belong in my work list.

I'm seeking an opportunity where I'm able to leverage project
management, team leadership, administrative and time management skills
to establish a career in the public affairs, public relations and or in
the event planning industry.

I am passionate about making a solid contribution to an organization
where I believe in helping others succeed, whether it's assisting them
in meeting their goals, organizing and planning the next great event,
organizational development or getting them connected with key
individuals.
