Kelly_Whitley_70x70_2017
How long have you been employed at Forecast5™?
Over 3 years! I started as an intern, then became a part-time employee, and became full-time in May of 2016.

What office are you based out of?
I was based in our Naperville, IL office until this July when I moved to Ohio. I now work remotely from my office in the Cleveland area.

Why did you join Forecast5?
I have always been interested in public education and business. My older sisters and my mom are teachers, and my dad is in sales. Forecast5 ties the two worlds together! I also love the environment and people at Forecast5. It's a place where employees are truly valued, and everyone cares about one another.

What is the most interesting or favorite part of your job?
My favorite part about my job is working directly with clients and helping them connect the dots and find successes using our tools. Helping clients achieve victories and make a difference in their district and community is very rewarding.

What are some cool projects you’ve seen our clients do with F5 products?
A New York client used 5Sight™ to analyze their student performance results and created a learning center for the areas they were struggling in. They used 5Cast™ to show how it would impact the district financially, and how they could make it work. A year later, their results had significantly improved in the subjects that they were performing poorly in. It was such a success that they ended up creating additional learning centers for other subjects at their district.

What is your favorite movie/book/music?
Movies (because who can pick just one?): The Notebook/Silver Linings Playbook/Dumb and Dumber

Book - Unbroken

Music - The Maine/Bruce Springsteen/John Mellencamp/Billy Joel/Elton John

Tell us one interesting fact about yourself?

I ran cross country and track, and my husband wrestled for the University of Wisconsin.
