Odds & Ends
Where are some of the places you’ve lived that impacted your life?
Oregon tops the list as I was born here and have lived in several beautiful parts of the state. Other places would have to include San Francisco, Houston, Puerto Rico, St. Croix and Southern Florida.
What are some of your favorite things to do?
Eating is definitely a favorite and a delicious meal is something I always enjoy. Fortunately, I also like being active whether it’s dancing a jig, exploring the outdoors or having a “walking meeting”.
What path brought you to this business?
Full Spectrum has evolved over the years and it’s been exciting to see the business mature. I have always been drawn to creative artistry and business and I’ve found the greatest fulfillment when the two are blended together. I also love partnering with other entrepreneurial-spirited people and tapping into my right and left brain to help bring a vision to fruition.
When did you start getting interested in technology?
I’ve had an interest in technology for a long time. Okay, I admit it, I took COBOL and Fortran in college and yes, we did use punched cards! Since that time, it’s been incredible to experience the advancements that have taken place in technology. There’s more happening than I can keep up with but I’ve had an extraordinary time building my own computers from scratch and figuring out the CSS code to jazz up our website.
How have others described working with and for you?
I received feedback from one of my 360 assessments that “I operate with energy and enthusiasm bolstered by solid technical grounding and professional expertise”. My colleagues have also told me that I bring fun and lightheartedness to any environment, am balanced and fair, ask great questions, offer emotional support, have amazing attention to detail and am dedicated to the nth degree.
