I started my career by accident 27 years ago in telecom as a customer care consultant and I loved it! I worked hard and the right people noticed. As a result, I started managing call center data system (DCRIS/CAMS) migrations and specialized in Rockwell's Business Processes and the Spectrum Integrated Call Center System. Fortunately, I became intimately familiar with call center operations. It was that opportunity when I realized my passion for IT, project management, and customer relations.
With my new found passion, I set some lofty goals for myself to achieve in 5 years by age 30, which included becoming an expert in network engineering, working in various industries managing IT projects, a six-figure salary, and a job at Adobe Systems. Ask me about how I did...
I am a purpose-oriented, performance-driven professional and a lot of fun to be around. There isn't anything that I can't accomplish!
Personally, I am a lover of life! And, it got a heck of lot more fun when I found the greatest love of my life and married him in 2010. Together, we have five amazing poodles (don't judge) and live life full. Living a healthy lifestyle through proper nutrition and exercise is very important to me. I am an athlete, food aficionado, closet writer, a professional mixed media artist (IG: missblueiz), and a Reiki Master. As a lover of life, I have respect for those nearing the end of theirs. As an End of Life Doula, I companion and serve people through transition and soul ascension. I enjoy taking on athletic challenges such as training for Spartan, The Tough Mudder, half-marathons, duathlons, centuries, hiking adventures, figure competitions, ... but secretly fears of being dead last.
On the weekends, I can be found with the hub's taking a quick getaway, hiking Camelback or Flat Iron, on some crazy adventure, up to my eyeballs in paint, relaxing at home, or hanging with friends at a local hot spot in central Phoenix, Arcadia, or Gilbert.
