Programmers are kind of like astronauts, right? (In my best “booming announcer voice”)

Ladies and gentleman, I present to you the newest member of our ProTrainings Team…

*drum roll please*


*clap clap clap*

I wanted you all to get to know Cindy, just a little bit more. So, here are some excerpts from a brief interview I did with Cindy just a couple weeks ago.

Cindy started with ProTrainings in May of 2012 as a programmer. And even though she just started, she said she is already really impressed with the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit around here.  “I enjoy being part of the great group here at ProTrainings,” she says with a sweet smile.

When asked what she could do, if she could do anything in the world, Cindy said: “I think for now, it is to do exactly what I am doing, and stay open to God’s will for anything else I need to do.  I believe God has me right where I am for a reason, so I pray for the grace to work hard and always find ways to improve at raising my children, being a good wife, being a good friend, and at being a programmer.”

“If I had to pick one person in my life I admire the most, it would be my husband, Tony,” she said. “As I get to know him more and more through the years, I am always amazed.  I don’t know if I can come up with words to do a description of him any justice, but I’ll say few quick things.”

“He is a very solid, strong person, and very genuine.  He loves his family a lot and would do anything for us.  He also can fix just about anything that breaks, and he does a very detailed and thorough job when he puts things together.”

(It sounds to me like she’s still a little twitter pated….AWWW!…but let’s keep moving on…)

Here’s a fun fact about Cindy. When she was younger, she wanted to be an astronaut when she grew up. And she had a special interest in Saturn for some reason. “I wrote a letter to NASA asking for more information on Saturn and they sent me a whole packet of information.  I was soooo excited!” she said with a sparkle in her eye.

(that’s where the title came from…it’s all coming together now, isn’t it?) 

And what was her favorite thing to do as a kid?….play in the waves of Lake Michigan with her family. “Why?” she laughs. “Because it was fun!!!”

So, there you have it. The newest member of our amazing ProTrainings team! For more information on Cindy and the rest of the crew, click here to read all about us and meet the team.

"You are crazy." my co-worker, Ryan, said today, "but don't worry, only the best people are." "HAHA! Thanks Ryan." I laughed. I typically have a very different perspective than most people I know, and my voice and perspective naturally come out in everything I do, say and write. Sometimes, I get called "crazy" for it. But it's okay, because "crazy people" are the only ones who end up changing the world anyway...and thankfully, I get to work at a company with some of the most amazing, crazy people I know. 🙂
