Business Systems Analyst


The fun environment and approachable people honestly make coming to work a pleasure. Not only are my coworkers extremely intelligent and open to sharing their wit in a friendly way, they’re also fun to be around in general. The open environment encourages everyone to genuinely be themselves, so I feel comfortable letting my bits of weird shine through. On top of all that, managers are always polite and never condescending. I truly feel like everyone wants to see everybody else succeed.

I like to skimboard competitively, snowboard, skateboard, play basketball, hike, and play videogames. Since moving to Arizona from the coast of North Carolina two years ago, I’ve had to adjust to less skimboarding and more hiking, but Arizona’s diverse assortment of biomes has made it a pleasure to explore.
