How long have you been employed at Forecast5?
18 months


What office are you based out of?
Fayetteville, AR

Why did you join Forecast5?
I have been a fan of the Forecast5 software and followed it for many years. The opportunity to work with cutting edge software for school districts and help school finance professionals was very attractive to me.

What is the most interesting or favorite part of your job?
I enjoy it when clients ask for my advice in solving problems and then we work together to build solutions. It is gratifying to watch them learn and implement new ideas. It elevates their status as a school finance practitioner and improves information sharing and education about the budget and other pertinent data for decision-making. I also really enjoy working with an energetic, bright team of people. Sharing solutions and problem solving with our team is very rewarding.

What are some cool projects you’ve seen our clients do with F5 products?
I am a big fan of Publish. It offers districts an easy tool to share and collaborate. I also really like the annual reports that utilize key information from 5Cast and 5Sight.

What is your favorite movie/book/music?
I am a big fan of live music. I try to see several concerts a year in all different genres. During college, I was a radio DJ at the college radio station and got a chance to see and interview lots of musicians.

Tell us one interesting fact about yourself?
I love to make jewelry. I refashion vintage pieces as well as make custom designs in precious metal clay.
