I work behind the scenes—chasing data, jumping in where needed, and managing multiple projects in services and marketing—as a Sales Administrator for PivIT partners, Mike and Justin, at the company that shall not be named for 8 years before starting at PivIT. I’ve known all of the partners of PivIT for over ten years, and I couldn’t imagine working for a better group of guys. We know how to play hard and work harder. Our company gets that there is life outside of work, and it’s the ideal situation for a work-life balance for me.
My husband, Ryan, and I have been married for 11 years now. At our wedding, we did a surprise dance that you can see here—https://youtu.be/EqgNzmwGUhI. We have two daughters, Rylie (age 8) and Clara (age 5), and a 10-year-old cat named Calvin. My dream job when I was their age was to be a detective, and since I am not one, I mostly read books and watch shows about them. I am constantly listening to audiobooks. I listen to anything by Ruth Ware, Gillian Flynn, or anything involving mystery the better. Tina Fey, Melissa McCarthy, Kristin Bell, and Reese Witherspoon are my favorite celebrities because they’re smart, funny, and relatable as moms too. I have always admired Warren Buffett. My dad is a pretty amazing businessman as well.
A personal goal of mine is to survive distance learning while working towards winning a strength training challenge at my gym. On the professional side of things, I graduated from college with a BBA and an emphasis in marketing. I didn’t really have a clear plan as to what I wanted to do and fell into this industry after moving to Santa Barbara. Now, I am doing the job I have always, yet never knew, wanted in a great work environment, and utilizing my natural tech ability.
