My first job out of college was working for a consulting firm which sent me all over the US to not so glamours cities and middle of nowhere towns but gave me great experience in various roles of software development. After 5 years of living out of suitcase I settled down in Houston and worked for Stewart Title as a Business Analyst. When my third child was born after working at Stewart for 10 years I decided to resign and stay at home with my children, a different but very rewarding time. After sending my last child off to start Kindergarten and having an empty house I had the urge to get back to work. I reached out to some old work colleagues and Kelly Moore reached back, telling me all about Golden Section and the role of Product Manager.

What is one thing people should know about you? My faith and my family mean everything to me. These days most of my personal stories revolve around my 3 busy and energetic children. I know their time as children is limited and I try to be there for all of the moments that I can.

What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you? I can be a reserved person but somehow found the courage to backpack across Europe by myself after I graduated from college. Something I will NEVER let my daughter do!!!

What are you most passionate about professionally? Seeing a feature work in a product that I helped to build. That is even more meaningful when working for a company like Golden Section where a product can represent a person’s dream.

What are you most passionate about personally? I love doing anything outdoors with my family – biking, hiking, swimming, we always have a blast together.

What is your favorite place to travel to and why? Anywhere in the Caribbean. Nothing beats white sands, blue waters, and fun island vibes.

What is your favorite way to pursue balance in your life? Making sure I make time for my family and living a healthy lifestyle.
