What’s your title at Credit Karma?
Describe in 25 words or less what you do.
I am the Office Guru. I know everything
How long have you worked at CK?
My 1-year anniversary is actually in about 2 weeks.
What’s your favorite thing about working at CK?
My list could go on forever, but I would say the culture. Everyone at CK is so passionate about our product, which is truly inspiring. It is also amazing working with my friends every single day!
What’s your favorite snack in the CK kitchen?
I have been called a “Snack Hoarder,” so everything? But if I had to choose, I would say Plentils, Vitamin Water, and any candy.
What is something your coworkers probably don’t know about you?
I am technically half Kiwi. My dad was born and raised in New Zealand, and my grandparents still live there. I am actually in the process of getting my citizenship there.
(Also, they know this, but I had to fit it in somewhere… I am a die-hard San Francisco Giants fan!)
What was your worst subject in elementary school?
Other than not understanding how to raise my hand, I would say probably grammar and writing. I have horrible handwriting!
It’s weird though… as I got older my grammar seemed to improve, but my math skills deteriorated.
What’s a secret (or not-so-secret) talent you have?
I have an impeccable sense of direction. I can drive somewhere once and remember how to get there (without any directions) the next time.
If you could pick any superhero power, what would it be and why?
It’s so hard to pick just one! But I would say the ability to fly, so I could travel anywhere in the world at a moment’s notice.
…And the ability to “Matilda” anything my way
What’s your best credit/money tip?
Create a budget and force yourself to stick to it. There’s nothing worse than living outside your means and not having enough money for F.U.N. at the end of the month.
