No Robots. Just Humans: Meet Mari Westberry
In our ongoing series called ‘No Robots. Just Humans,’ we offer you a look into the people who make Scrypt the special place that it has become. Especially to the ‘family’ of people that come to work every day.
For the last four years, Mari has been a Scrypt Product Manager overseeing two of the products in the Scrypt product line. She’s gearing up to release the new Scrypt Document Platform and is eagerly anticipating it’s debut. A resident of Austin, Mari is much more than our Product Manager. She is a wife, a mom to two boys (who she claims are giving her a lot of gray hair), one toddler girl and two dogs! You can say she’s a little busy.
Prior to her joining the Scrypt team she was in sales for an electronic health record company, and we are super happy that she decided to come to work with us!
Why did you join Scrypt?
I was looking for a company with leadership that valued me, had a vision, and would allow me to be a real part of making that vision a reality. After hearing the passion that Aleks had for the company and the products, I knew it’s where I wanted to be.
Fill in the blank: If you really knew me _____________.
If you really knew me, you’d know I am a country girl at heart.
What would a perfect day look like for you?
I’d wake up to a beautiful sunny morning and 3 happy kids (this doesn’t have to be realistic does it?)..we’d all go out for a hike on the greenbelt with the pups, hang out on the lake for a few hours, have a nice lunch, and no one would complain about anything. We’d go back home for a nap, and then my husband and I would go out in the evening to see my favorite band and dance the night away.
(Sounds perfect to us.)
How do you think your coworkers see you?
Bossy, capable, direct, fair, fun. Or maybe just bossy.. I’m working on that :)
How do you act when you are stressed?
I get pretty impatient and short tempered, but I pop out of it pretty quickly.
Use one word to describe yourself.
