What is the best thing about Resource Data for you?
I really like the diversity of project work and the diversity of my roles depending on the project. I’ve never done the same thing twice. For me, it’s fun to learn about different industries and different client needs.
What is your favorite thing about your role?
I really enjoy working with clients and end users during development testing. It’s cool to see how they start to use the new system, what issues they have, fixing them, and getting them turned around. The process of interacting closely with clients, buttoning up the process, and seeing the end result right before production is fast-paced and fun.
What has surprised you at Resource Data?
The work-life balance has been huge for me. My husband is in the Air Force, and I’ve been able to continue working remotely to advance my career as we’ve moved around for his assignments. Everyone at Resource Data has been supportive of my situation, and I always feel like I’m part of the office even when I’m not physically there.
What do you do in your spare time? What are your hobbies?
I’m a horseback rider. My other hobbies and interests include photography, Crossfit, Gator football (I’m a University of Florida alum), and travel.
Where have you lived?
I’ve lived in Florida, Indiana, Virginia, Alaska, South Korea, and Nevada.
