I am a mom of 2 little boys. I reside in New Jersey. I have many years of case management experience with an AS degree in Human Service and currently a returning student majoring in Nursing. I am looking for a permanent remote full time job. I currently work as a contract Disaster Case Manager. Relying on a contract job is not for me. I have a family to feed, school to pay, and to top it off going through a separation. I am such an educated individual with a passion to grow in a company. If there is anyone out their willing to interview me I would greatly appreciate it. I am looking for $28+ per hr with room for growth.

Hello,

My name is Kim. I just recently moved states from Tennessee to Alabama and I am currently looking for a position in Montgomery, Alabama for administrative assistant, receptionist, clerical, patient service representative, field service coordinator, or a call center. I am very qualified for all of these positions as my resume will show. If anybody can give me a heads up on where to look that would be wonderful!!!
