Read on and discover this week’s featured staff member and Resident Unicorn: Carrie Sharma,  Business Services Manager. 

DL: Name and position with GSATi?

CS: Carrie Sharma, Business Services Manager.

 DL:And how long have you worked with GSATi?

CS: A little over 1 year! 

DL:  That’s not as long as I had thought! Where did you receive your education and/or experience in our field?

CS: I have an educational background in International Business but was roped into recruited into the IT field several years ago on a ERP project at a former company. That’s where I met most of the GSATi group actually!

DL: That’s so awesome! What would you consider your greatest accomplishment during your time as a member of the GSATi Family?

CS: Going live with my first client site in April of last year.

DL: Richard talked about that same situation for his greatest moment as well! I know that was a big deal for us as a company, so props to you. So, what’s the most fun thing you have done at or with GSATi?

CS: Probably doing the office dares during our last company event. We broke into teams and had to do a series of Challenges to earn points – the challenges were a little crazy so it was really fun.

DL: That seems to be everyone’s favorite memory these days! I can’t blame you though. We had an awesome time.  What about your at-home family? Any pets or kids?

CS: I have a husband of 10 years, 2 little ones - 4 and 6 years old and a Greyhound named Taj, he’s 11.

DL: Oh, how fun! I bet you guys have a great time with that pup! What about your favorite local restaurant or business on the square that you like to visit when you’re here in town?

CS: This is a hard one, there are so many good places to visit on the square! For restaurant, I’d say either LSA burger or Pickled Carrot. For a cool store, I love Atomic Candy, so many awesome things in that place!

DL: Oh man, all of those are great choices! Alright, so this question is a bit more for our developers, but I must ask your preference; PHP or .NET and why?

CS: Both have advantages and disadvantages but I’d have to say .NET- that’s all I know! It’s interesting to hear how the PHP team implements different things on their projects v. ours and hear about their challenges 

DL: Right on!  Okay, two more questions.  First of last, what's your fondest office memory since you've been here?

CS: Probably receiving my inflatable Unicorn Horn from one of our .NET developers, Carole. A reminder that anything is possible in the magical world of development haha!

DL: That's such a great gift! I think we all need to be reminded that we're all unicorns in our own way ;). Alright, last question: Why choose GSATi?

CS:  GSATi is a great place to work. We are like family here and have lots of fun!

DL: I couldn’t agree more!
