Tell us about your experience with Datasource Consulting (DSC), including types of projects and positions held:

I am also an active member in the Datasource Action Squad and love organizing company events. I enjoy getting to smile at everyone that walks in the door and providing support to the Datasource team.

Tell us what you like most about working at Datasource.
I have really enjoyed working with my team; we are constantly laughing and here to support one another. I also like that I get to bring my dog Kingston to work.
What is on your bucket list?
I would love to travel to Santorini, Greece for a few weeks - fingers crossed I get to go there on my honeymoon! I would also like to adventure around Ireland and drink Guinness at the Guinness factory. Music wise, I really want to attend Burning Man, but I need to grasp the fact that I wouldn’t be able to shower for a week, LOL.
What are you proudest accomplishments?
~ I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Colorado, Denver
~ My daughter Layla, she’s turned into a very smart, wonderful little girl
~ Buying my first house in Littleton, CO two years ago
~ Summiting two 14ners so far (a new hobby of mine)
What are your hobbies outside of work?
I LOVE the outdoors and going on adventures in the Colorado mountains with my family and my dog, King. I try to go camping as much as I can in summer and hike year around in the foothills near my house.
During my down time, I enjoy reading fiction books and cooking new Mexican recipes. I also have an obsession with cats! Darla and Aria my cute Tortoiseshells.
What is your hidden talent?
I go to the farmers’ market in the fall months and gather ingredients to can fresh salsa with my mom. We can about 200 jars a year.
I also can make the world’s best green chili! I think we should have a chili cook-off here at the office.
What phobias do you have?
I’m deathly afraid of bees, in fact I run and scream every time I see one. I also don’t like unpainted toe nails…weird, I know.
