I grew up near the Wyoming border, about 20 miles outside of Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Growing up a modest ranch kid in the middle of nowhere certainly impacts your way of life and mentality---it teaches you manners, honesty, humility, the importance of family, and instills in a person a work ethic which is unique. If you're not working and staying busy, then what exactly are you doing?
During those moments when I am not working, you will find me playing with my boys at the park, pool, camping, hiking,or spending time with my family. I live for family BBQ's and get togethers, and am very lucky to have the family, and extended family/in-laws that I do.
Family is a blessing. When you don't have a big one, and the rest are spread across the country, your family is even more important...and I am thankful and blessed.
I was incredibly lucky to get the chance to work in the Government Contracting world (thank you, Brian Sperry).
In the last 8 years, I've moved from an unpaid intern at Tech BizSolutions (which merged with PBC to form ReliAscent), to having three careers. Today, I work not only as the Marketing Manager for ReliAscent LLC, but the Director of Business Development at Technology Applications, Inc. (TAI) (an aerospace thermal management company based in Boulder, Colorado, specializing in copper and carbon thermal straps, thermal strap design, fabrication and testing), and as the Director of Business Development for TAI, Inc., a sister company which specializes in aerospace thermal management and develops innovative thermal management technology (in addition to marketing at TAI, Inc., I have worked on Ph I and Ph II SBIR proposals and programs for the DoD, and have also had an article published in the Journal Cryogenics).
I am very thankful to have gotten the opportunity to work with Brian Sperry, and to have orchestrated and/or contributed to record breaking growth and sales for all companies. I was given a chance to achieve in this industry, even though I had no experience in government contracting or the aerospace industry...and found my niche.
I am always happy to help our customers or contractors in general, and as you may have likely seen from any of our blogs or emails, I make customer service my top priority. I may not always have the answer, but if you have a question or concern, you can email or call me from 6 AM - 10 PM MST, M-F (and via email every weekend), and I can get you in touch with someone who can help!
