  1. What’s your role here at Nerdio? What do you do on a day-to-day basis and how do you help partners/customers? 

I’m a Partner Success Manager for Nerdio on the MSP side.  I mostly have conversations with business owners or tech’s that are looking for an easier way to Manage and optimize Azure/AVD/Win365 environments.  A lot of what I do is demoing our software & showing the ease of use along with the amazing value our tool provides MSPs around building their practice. 

  1. What’s a fun fact about you that most people don’t know/couldn’t guess? 

I dealt poker for 12 years and that’s actually how I met my husband.  I went to Las Vegas on a last minute whim and he happened to be out there at the same time with some mutual friends.  We’re both from Florida and started dating upon his return & “The Rest is History”! Also, I lived in Turks & Caicos for a year 😊 

  1. What’s one technology advancement you hope to see or think we will see in the next ten years? 

Flying Cars – or at least cars that are MUCH better at self-driving.  This is something I’d love to see happen if it can be done right so there are less accidents and people can focus more on what’s important.  

  1. What are three albums you’d bring with you to a deserted island? 

Phantom of the Opera, The Greatest Showman soundtrack, Stroke 9 – Nasty Little Thoughts

Full House or The Office 

  1. Besides a standard computer, what is the earliest piece of technology you remember owning? 

Atari & then when I was 6 or 7 my mom & dad finally bought my brother and I a Nintendo for Christmas.  That was the coolest gift ever back then! 

  1. You joined Nerdio in April. What drew you to join Nerdio’s team?

The huge amount of opportunity that’s sitting right in front of me & the people.  I had conversations with a few people from HR to C-Level to my direct manager & couldn’t believe how passionate everyone was.  I knew it was a team I wanted to be a part of and am so glad I joined and took a leap of faith.  

  1. What’s the most valuable thing you’ve learned while working in tech? 

That everything is constantly changing & evolving, and you have to be willing to change with it or you will get left behind.  This forces you to be more open to new ideas, new ways of thinking and just to become a Student of Learning.
