What do you enjoy most about working at Thinking Organized?
Thinking Organized is a wonderful place for me to work because I get to utilize both my educational background and career experience. I also get to be part of a wonderful team that supports students in reaching their full potential, which is very rewarding!

What has been your greatest personal and/or professional achievement and why?
Accepting and completing a job contract across the country to gain career experience was both a challenge and achievement that I will never forget. I grew a lot, both individually and professionally, and I like to think that career experience led me here!

What interesting fact would your clients and colleagues be most surprised to learn about you?
I’ve always been a country girl at heart! I grew up riding horses and participating in rodeo events. Horseback riding is still one of my favorite activities, and I have a soft spot for all animals. I recently adopted a four year old Yellow Labrador named Scooby.
