DriveTime provides everyone an opportunity to get involved in business impacting projects, regardless of their level. Employees are held responsible for their work in every aspect, including delivery and presentation to senior management when applicable. DriveTime continuously fosters relationships between all levels of employees, which helps to encourage the collaboration that occurs each and every day.

I’ve recently taken a strong liking towards indoor rock climbing, which provides relief from the brutal Arizona heat. Rock climbing is a great activity that allows you to continuously push yourself and strive for improvement without getting dull, especially since the gyms change the paths frequently. When I’m not rock climbing, which sadly is most days, I also enjoy playing recreational sports like kickball, ultimate Frisbee, and softball with friends or taking my dog out to the dog park…or, honestly, furiously binge watching a new show on Netflix.
