Up next on the Meet the Team series is Phuong Palmares. Phuong is based out of Southern California and is the Managing Director for the Sprintly product. When she’s not busy asking “business people” type questions and bossing people around in Slack, she likes to collect a garage full of shoes, but will gladly leave them all behind for long barefoot walks on the beach.

Beachside, with my loved ones, anywhere warm and with an umbrella’d beverage in my hand.

If you could have any super human ability what would it be and why?
I’d like to be able to read people’s minds. I find the personal motivations and intellectual logic around idea generation and fixing problems incredibly fascinating. Having the ability to peek into the minds of one of our office geniuses during those processes would be mind-blowing.
What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever done?
Taking a break from my professional career in tech to stay at home with my young family was a very difficult decision to make. Keeping the balance in all parts of my life is important but I don’t regret taking the “break” for nano-second. I am also thankful to now be back in the mix and working with lots of incredible people.
What is your theme song?
“I’m So Excited” by Jessie Spano because I’m a product of the ‘90s.

Backward facing on any type of train system is just pure torture.

Late fall has to be my favorite time of year because it is when the warm Southern California sun finally gives way to golden leaves and breaths of cool fresh air.
What is one of your "bucket list" items?
Seeing the auroras is at the top of my list!
