About Me

I am a born and raised Texan. Both my parents grew up in the Dallas Metro. They met, they fell in love, they got married, and they had babies...3 of them. I'm the middle child. I have an older sister, Jen and a younger brother, Michael. Don't worry I don't have middle child syndrome to bad..ok maybe a little but that isn't my parents fault...they have gone over and beyond making sure I know they love me.

Not wanting to be predicable or just not trying in high school I went to Texas Tech. I really didn't know much about it just that my dad went there for a semester. I ended up with a fiance and a management information systems degree. Not really knowing much about the business world I ended up in well...a secretary role really at a consulting firm. I got to dabble here and there with websites and project plans but didn't really dive into my "career" right away. I got to work with some cool people and things were always changing (which I liked b/c well let's face it I like change). Then my boss came across a new offering for the company and it was a perfect fit for me. So, I'm now a consultant in the BI space and loving it.

My hobbies have included cooking, painting, photography, scrapbooking, blogging, planning financials (ok that one is more like a sick obsession), decorating, pretty much anything that can't pay the bills and no one really cares about. Recently I have started to run. I really enjoy pushing myself to the limit to see how far I can go. I think it is important to set goals so this time it is a 5K.

Hopefully in writing this blog I will be able to find myself whatever that means. I am still pretty young and while most people think I have it all figured out I don't. I'm told God gives gifts to everyone...He just hasn't told me what mine is yet. So, in the meantime I'm going to keep on moving.
