Freelance Marketing, Human Resources, and Management in St. Louis, Missouri

My name is Amanda Florez and I am an Entertainment Business (B.S) graduate of Full Sail University. I crossed the stage as the Valedictorian in May 2013. While maintaining my hectic campus schedule, I worked part time for Victorias Secret at The Florida Mall. I also tutored Entertainment Business Bachelor and Master students.

Post graduation, I became an active contributor to the marketing department of ICON Events. Within weeks of employment I was promoted to a Client Relations and Training Manager position. My responsibilities included managing a team of 10+ associates, and managing marketing material and campaigns for our clientele. As a manager I hired, trained, and developed marketing reps in strategic branding and marketing campaigns. Six months later I cross trained to the HR Dept. and assisted in the opening of a business venture in Winter Park, Florida, where I was the Human Resources Specialist and Corporate Recruiter. What I've learned from my collegiate and work experience is that what you get out is a direct reflection of what you put in.

As of August 2014, I have relocated to St. Louis, MO. While here I became an active part of the MVP Security and Midwest Valet Parking team as the HR Recruiter. I also became the Division Manager of Events at Clayton Valet. I took on the responsibility of scouting qualified talent for both organizations. As well as managing Client Relations, Staffing and Scheduling, and contracting bids for long term accounts, Currently, I am the Director of Leasing for off-campus student housing at University Meadows - University of Missouri.

My skills include: recruiting and ad posting, business development, event coordination, campaign development, strategic marketing, competitive and strategic planning, travel booking, blogging, web management, personnel management as well as being a superb writer and editor. I am also proficient in applications such as: iMovie, GarageBand, Keynote, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Powerpoint, Publisher, Quickbooks, etc.. Above all I am a leader and team player who is punctual, organized, and passionate about my work.
