We Are TangoCode
I enjoy challenges and problem solving; that’s why I love technology so much – it’s always changing and really hard to be bored. I learn from my work with my team and clients in different industries, which makes for very well rounded experience. I believe in continuous learning and improvement; there is always a faster, more efficient way to complete a process. Automating tasks is great way to make that possible. As a woman in technology I like to participate in events and initiatives that help other women succeed in the field, like Developing Digital Diversity.
Favorite Burger: Egg, Bacon, Bacon & Bacon, maybe lettuce, and tomato.
Since age 7 I have had a passion for computers. Growing up on my dad’s dairy farm in Western Kansas I saved every penny I earned to buy a Commodore 64, my very first computer. When Apple released their Apple IIe I bought it and have been hooked on Apple ever since. I am a serial entrepreneur; I have always wanted to be in charge of my own destiny and have been super fortunate to build my company with Veronica Buitron and a great team! In my free time you’ll find me with my kiddos or doing Crossfit; I love staying fit!
Favorite Burger: Egg, Spinach, Cheddar, Mayo, all on a wheat bun!
