Salem is an experienced PA who has worked on everything from feature films and documentaries to unscripted reality TV. She is a self-starter, organized, adaptive and quick on her feet, making her an asset on set as well as in the office.

In the office, I assist the production coordinator in making travel arrangements, logistical planning (parking, crew meals for shoot days), drafting expense reports and per diem sheets, tracking receipts and expenditures, and organizing/sharing documents on google drive. On set, I work as the key set PA where I drive a 15 pass van, load and unload gear, go on miscellaneous runs (crafty, props, etc.), pick up/return rentals, distribute walkies and handle release forms in addition to sharing release photos with office production team on google drive.
