Kirsten and her husband Ramiro.

What do you consider the best invention/technology?

Unified communications. These tools save so much timefrom simply streamlining expenses or organizing an internal or external meeting with collaborative apps.

How do you keep a healthy work/life balance?

I stay organized and anticipate potential tasks. I also try to avoid being over-stressed or overwhelmed; I remove myself to take a breath and briefly engage with co-workers, which usually ends up in laughter.

What are your top 3 life highlights?

1. The opportunity to work overseas for almost a decade in Australasia and South East Asia. 2. Traveling to Burma, during a window of peace in Myanmar. Beautiful country and people. 3. The day I finally felt comfortable in my own skin.

What is most exciting about being a #CarouselCrew member?

The energy and excitement! Everyone is passionately working toward becoming the best team/company in our ever-growing market. Because we’re expanding so rapidly, Carousel is an intense environmentthe pace is lightning fast, but it also increases camaraderie among the employees. It’s kind of a corporate “Tough Mudder”.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

Know your limitations, but don’t underestimate your potential abilities.
