Who I Am
I am a rare breed – a Native Dallasite! I graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas with a Dual Bachelor’s Degree in Management Information Systems and Accounting. I started working for Frito-Lay in my Senior Year of College as a Sales Analyst. Upon graduation, I was offered a full-time Position as a Manager in Sales Information Systems. I was fortunate to work on the scope and development of the Route Salesman’s Handheld Computer. My next dream job was at American Airlines working in the Scheduling Department designing and developing client server applications that incorporated mathematical modeling techniques to optimize the utilization of the fleet and airline personnel. In 2003, I made the decision to join my husband – Rick – and continue the implementation of the r2 Technologies Inc. vision of creating a Network of the Best Information Technology Minds in the DFW Metroplex.
